It was just a year ago when the Waldo Canyon Fire ravaged our community. The same thing is back, and we’re watching the flames right off our back deck.
The picture above was taken on Tuesday when the Black Forest Fire kicked up. The weather conditions were awful: hot and windy. The flames swept through some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the area. We know several families who are evacuated and some who have lost their homes entirely.
This is serious business. Please pray for Black Forest and the surrounding communities. Check out my ChrisJeub.com post here asking for prayer yesterday. I also took a YouTube Video when the wind picked up yesterday. This is terrible.
I pulled the evacuation map and compared it to the Waldo Canyon Fire map from last year, and placed a red star where we live. We’re sandwiched right in between:
I hope this helps put in perspective the devastation of this fire.
