The state of Colorado is on fire!!!! This is from a fire that started up yesterday about a mile from our jobsite which is about 2 miles west of Boulder, CO. I saw the lightning strike that started it, ,and watched it grow from a tiny little puff of smoke into this 300 acre beast in a little under 2 hours. I have never seen anything like it.... I'm scared for the rest of the summer. Colorado is SO dry, and it's not even the hot dry part of the season yet.
Here is the link to the rest of the album - this shows the fire growing from a small puff of smoke to a 300 acre state emergency in 2 hours. http://www.lohrphoto.com/Other/Flagstaff-fire-2012/23816007_FkxNwt#!i=1930094538&k=9L9Fhgv
