I'm rather offended by your response-type but I won't delve into it. Only that laughing at me was not very nice.

You assume I haven't. Nor was I saying that NORAD was in trouble with this fire. If evacuation was ever needed they would easily leave the base and go into the mountain yes. I was just pointing out that things had indeed been moved out. The facility is more than capable of weathering some fires, yes. The mountain would never fall to a fire.

However, again, I was simply pointing out that the command faculty was not located purely within Cheyenne Mountain and that the fire could disrupt some functions - though more on a personnel level than a operations level.

Just talked to my son in Springs, he's east of I-25 off Galley & Powers so they're safe for now. I'm south of Pueblo so they'll come down here if they have to.

Phone service is pretty bad our calls kept getting dropped.

I just heard on KRDO that Obama will be in Springs this friday to assess the situation.

What scares me is that I-25 runs right along the front range if that closes down getting out of Springs could be a nightmare. Yesterday evening around 6 pm cars on I-25 near woodmen had their headlights on because it was so dark due to smoke.

The only problem with thunderstorms right now would be the wind. Not much rain is expected but if a lot falls it could cause flash flooding around the area of the burn scar. 42 lightning to ground strikes is being reported right now.

My apologies if you think I was laughing at you, this is not the case. I was instead laughing at the report. They did indeed move some of the projects from Cheyenne Mountain to Peterson I do not deny, however to move the Classified projects from the most secure location in the U.S. to a less secure area is just too absurd to actually believe. Peterson does not have the capability to protect some of the projects within the mountain. NORADS entrance tunnel is over 100 yards long then you come to a solid vault type door 25 feet thick with 8 foot diameter reinforcement bars before you even get into the buildingS(yep 6 of them) all sitting on giant springs so they would bounce rather than take an impact. Then you have 6 more floors under those containing Super Classified projects. I cant give any more about the interior. Not to mention the high powered automatic weapons that are motion sensitive and come up out of the ground all over the mountain.

Again I am not laughing at you at all, nor any disrespect towards you, only the article. Peterson has nothing close to this type of security and I would bet this article was put out to divert attention as it, NORAD, is well know planet wide.

Yep, life here in Colorado has been crazy for us. We're literally watching our world burn at this moment. I'm not too far from the High Park Fire and know many around both that fire and the Waldo Canyon one as well. A few family friends have lost their homes already to both. This is getting rather frightening.

About 2 weeks or so ago my mum actually had to brush ash off of our car from the fires here.


My stepdad actually watched lightning strike up the mountain last week that caused another fire while he was at work. They got that one contained quickly and put out, though, which is definitely good.

This is a panoramic picture I took with my phone shortly after the High Park fire started. This was literally all the smoke covering downtown Fort Collins that day. That night, the smoke was so bad in my area that my sister and I had to walk around with goggles and masks on just to see and breathe. There was a terrible haze surrounding us too from the smoke.

It is terrible since I live 30 minutes away from the fire.
I was on the Air Force base a few days ago, and saw the smoke traveling that way. I really hope this fire gets taken care of. I hate to see more people become homeless, and stay in schools, and on military bases.

Yeah the cell service is almost gone except texting seems to work fine. The smoke is so thick its blocking the signal and high demand is the cause I hear.

I've told the kids to text or email me with updates.

I'm hearing the interstate is already getting jammed up because of cars stalling, due to the heat, and looky-loos.

Well, it looks like Obozo is coming to Colorado Springs. It's nice to know that all the fire fighting air support will be grounded so that they can clear the airspace for His Majesty. He should fly into DIA and DRIVE DOWN, so that they can keep the tankers in the air!!!!

Anyway, they've been flying the bombers and snorkel helicopters our of the Jeffco Airport all day. I'd say the planes take off every 10 minutes or so. I took some photos with my phone, but don't have any way to upload them while I'm at work. One of my coworkers left just now while I was outside because he's on pre-evacuation in Boulder. The clouds are coming in right now in northern Colorado, and they're dark. I hope there's rain and not just lightning.

I have been on the back side of Chyenne and if you happen to get by the perimiter (some have) your met with M.P.s
the motion detectors are like Area 51's, they know your there way before you reach the perimiter.

Stay safe and report back if you can.

Be sure to take lots of drinking water with you in case you get stuck in traffic.

Winds are getting real strong here in the south. Be careful if the wind starts up you could easily get trapped.

I must have missed that one. My Father was the Chief of Security at NORAD and was the one responsible for installing the weapons on the mountain, so I know first hand a lot of what is there and NORAD is much more than just a few computer screens watching the sky and the space around this planet. I will have to bring SG1 on Netflix and check it out.
