  1. I can second that the Colorado wildfires are hot…and scary, the 100 degree weather isn’t helping things either considering that usually we get maybe 10 100 degree days in an entire summer and we’re already around 20. Sigh. At least the rains have sort of started and I’m hoping they help the firefighters.
