As you may have heard by now, there is a huge wildfire near Colorado Springs. As I write this, portions of NW Colorado Springs are being evacuated. Let me just say that the sheer size of the smoke plume is quite impressive... in a bad way. :(
In fact, as of 6:34pm Mountain Time, it was just announced that the Air Force Academy base housing is now on Pre-evacuation Alert.
If the Waldo Canyon wildfire affects you or someone you know, you can find current info at http://www.inciweb.org/incident/2929/
Stay safe, people!
UPDATE: As of 6:55pm, the Pine Valley Housing area on the Air Force Academy is now on Mandatory Evacuation.
