    I live in Tabernash so not even is the same valley as the fire right now. I'd say the risk to my community is that the winds turn north, the fire crosses 34 and comes through The Strawberry/ Doe Creek. That said I've got a life time of stories of some truly heroic shit, I've moved a lot of horses and cows, pulled a ton of equipment trailers...and unfortunately know a lot of people who's home, businesses, and lively hoods are probably gone.

    That said this community if full of mostly compassionate get it done hard headed helpful rednecks who just make it happen. We will come out the other side stronger no doubt.

    I live in Tabernash so we are out of the line of fire for now. It terms of helping out, I think that is too come. If I hear of any immediate needs, I'll let you know. Everyone is asking to help and nobody needs anything that I know of.

Horse and RVs everywhere, super long lines at the gas stations and grocery (City Market closed at 3pm yesterday), some sort of weird panic-y fish outta water vibe from outta state tourtists and WFH Covid hideouts. Combine this with a full closure of public lands and a bit of a strange place to be for an outsider. I'm not saying don't go but it is ain't all flat brims, chardonnay, and puffy coats this weekend. [/blog]
    Good PSA. Why anyone would think now is the time to visit WP is beyond me; they should be beaten.

    The people I know that are second home owners were offering up their places on the Grand County Garage Sale FB page for displaced locals.

    Stay safe foggy, thanks for the updates.

    If you own a second home up by the ski area, you while about the smoke an refer to the people affected by the fire as "those people in Granby and Grand Lake", you are an insensitive asshole. I won't forget. Sorry your new Audi has some ash on it.

    I've know Lyle and Marilyn since I was 22 years old. The world needs more people like them.

    This fire is going to be with us for a long time. At this point, it is safe to assume that ski season may be on a bit of a hold. There are so many displaced families that businesses are having a hard time operating. School is closed next week.

    Damn Foggy, sorry for your loss. Good luck over there. Hopefully this snow puts a big wet damper on the fires, albeit far too late for some.

    From that map it looks like fire is in the middle of Grand Lake. Has the map been accurate or is it geoshifted at all?

    I assume that there are some errors in the exact locations mapped.

    Sounds like they're trying to stop the spread East at Bear Lake rd. Map here seems to show the fire has reach the road in one spot with a whole lot of hours to go before the weather changes.

    The portion of East Troublesome that is in RMNP is now being managed by the same Incident team that has been running the Cameron Peak Fire. Communication has been very good from these guys, and Iíve been impressed with their work, especially as of late. We were able to get back into our place yesterday and the burn was contained about a mile down the road from us. Looking west past Masonville itís burnt ridge after burnt ridge. Here is the link to this mornings update which are put out twice a day. The team has also been doing in-depth FB live community meetings three days a week.

    My heart goes out to all those folks in Estes, today is going to be a long wait. Itís a shitty feeling updating maps/ links and watching it bear down on your home.

    Maybe a sliver of good news, the forecasted low temperatures seems to keep dropping. A few days ago it was 20, not its 10. Take what we can get at this point.

    To Summit County Residents
    Like much of the rest of the country, COVID rates are going up in Summit County. Over the last two weeks, Summit's cumulative rate of cases was the 6th highest in Colorado. If this rate doesn't go down over the next two weeks, more severe restrictions will be put in place, hampering our ability to ski, work and enjoy life.

    Conventional wisdom tells us that these cases are being brought in by outside tourists. Turns out that is almost completely false. Contact tracing has told us Summit County residents are spreading COVID to other Summit County residents. Nearly all of this is happening through socialization - an evening party, drinks after work, hanging too close with too many people. Many of the transmissions have occurred in the late evening, after partying, when peoples' guards are down. If we want to enjoy winter in Summit County, we are going to have to turn things around quickly. Keep your face coverings on. Maintain your physical distances. Keep your groups small. The time to act is now.
