however -- the fire does look to be doing better today -- the sun even peeked out from the clouds today for a few hours.

To be fair on that point, I did hear earlier that the Army from Ft. Carson and the Airforce are helping with the fire up by the Academy.. Wish I had a source and it more acurately quoted though. Also, there was a report of a military convoy that was spotted on I-25 with dozer equipment today.edit on 27-6-2012 by Wookiep because: (no reason given)

I always checked my watch against the afternoon 3 min rain you could almost set it to 3:15 lol. I know this is an exageration a little bit but yah short afternoon rains that last a little longer.
The problem is now that if CS does get heavy rains it could flash flood the City now that all the natural water blocks and absorbers(trees) are gone so it is hazard(hail storms) after hazard(fire) after hazard(floods).
