PostSubject: Pray against fires in Colorado   Mon Jun 25, 2012 3:13 pm

We've got multiple forest fires burning here in Colorado, and the Waldo Canyon fire is very near me. Yesterday we saw the flames coming over the ridge, but they seem to have stopped. The smell of smoke is nasty at times and ash has been falling. Please pray that it doesn't burn Queen's Canyon, Garden of the Gods, or Colorado Springs.

Thanks!

This is judgment. Multiple mountainsides are in flames! As a nightmarish fire rages here in Colorado Springs my father-in-law in Beverly Hills, Florida, says the streets are flooded and boats are sailing down the streets rescuing people. Even he - a staunch Catholic - is talking about the End Times now. According to Chuck Youngbrandt - this is just the beginning of troubles for America.

OMG - I just stepped outside and smoke is everywhere! My eyes started burning and ash was falling! We're thinking of leaving but aren't sure where to go.

Fire approaching homes w/o Centennial and the Flying W. Ranch is burning. It's not that far from us now, but I think we're safe here aside from the smoke.

Good luck skycastle, you have my prays. Have your bags packed and in the car in case they tell you to evacuate. Better to get out without delay if it comes to that.

Thanks for praying! The fire seems to have missed us and we haven't been forced to evacuate yet, but there is much confusion about which areas are under mandatory evacuation.

Well, it seems like a lot of people have stopped coming here or only do it rarely anymore. Plus, I think some only look at the political thread.

This is amazing. It was last year in June (same month!) that we had that horrible fire in Colorado Springs. Now Black Forest and Canon City are on fire! There was a fire at the Air Force Academy as well, but that was put out.


Black Forest is just outside Colorado Springs and the smell of smoke was strong here today, as well as a large plume of smoke being visible. Fox Run Park, a favorite of mine, is also burning. :cry:Black Forest is a beautiful place, and so far 92 homes have burned and the fire is zero% contained. 


Canon City has the Royal Gorge Bridge and RR, as well as my favorite winery, the Holy Cross Abbey.

This is awful. I had also planned to take my wife shooting today near Canon City, but we had to cancel that.


I doubt it's a coincidence that 3 fires started here almost simultaneously. I think these were planned, by terrorists. Last year at the same time we had 7-10 fires burning simultaneously, two in Colorado Springs. These arsonists wait until a really hot month and pick the hottest days (the last two days here set heat records) to attack.

Here's the fire crossing Black Forest Road:

"Some residents evacuated from the Black Forest Fire so quickly that they had no time to do anything but set their animals free. On CBS4 News at 6pm, Jennifer Brice has the story about the rescue efforts to locate these animals. Latest on the fire: http://cbsloc.al/11WWTpU

That's to bad, but at least they have a chance to run. Some dogs, cats, hamsters, etc were abandoned indoors when New Orleans flooded and starved before anybody came for them.
