Hopefully the precip today will help get the fire(s) under control. Leadville was socked in with smoke yesterday, assuming from the Cameron Peak fire. Traffic eastbound on I-70 showed how many escaped the city this weekend. We booked through last night at Turquoise Lake, but since I had to be back in town early this morning (Tuesday), decided to play it safe and not take chances with the rain/snow/freezing weather forecast, and came home last night. 5 MPH from Silverthorne to the tunnel, and 5 MPH from Empire to Idaho Springs.

We were down south by Westcliffe and had thick smoke down there. I saw a satellite time lapse of yesterday and it looks like most of the smoke we had in the southern and central part of the state was from California fires.

My brother in Loveland said it was snowing ash all day yesterday.

After all the smoke we endured in Glenwood for a few weeks, it was distressing to find ourselves breathing it in again.

All day Monday it was indeed "ashing" all over the Fort Collins/Loveland/Greeley/Windsor area. Visible accumulation, my truck and trailer were covered in it, and there was a odd coverage on the trees.

Pre-snow, the Cameron Peak Fire exploded again to over 102,000 acres. From Friday through Monday it went from 24,000 to that 102,000 acres, and according to the Sheriff it as doing runs measured in miles. The snow will give local authorities a chance to get in and see first hand what sort of destruction there's been to any structures in the area. They stated that there were some losses in the Rustic area, now they may be able to see how bad.

It was a help. No fire spread noted. Fire location received around 14inches of snow, and there have been snow showers up there since the big snow. Temps are in the 30s during the day, dropping into the 20s at night, wind chills in the teens. Possibly hit 50s on Friday and a return of winds up there. The snows have dampened any fuel sources for a while, but the fire is certainly not knocked out. 1200 firefighters assigned and they've been able to get more fire lines established. Unfortunately, there has been some property losses, some historic buildings were destroyed. Sheriff's Department hopes to have a property loss assessment soon. I'm fearful for Spencer Heights, Poudre City and Rustic, all of which are in the fire zone.

This photo taken last Saturday, September 5. At first I thought this was a most unusual sunset. On the Bear Lake Road in RMNP.
