We live in Colorado Springs and are currently under pre-evacuation orders for the fire in the Black Forest. The fire is about 5 miles east of our home. Many of our friends have already evacuated. One good friend's house could be a total loss. We're packing up a few things so we can bug out quickly. Our tapestry from CN is one of the few treasured items that will go with us, if we have to go. Kids are packed and ready to leave. Dogs are clueless.

And, regardless of what happens, we will still be at CN in July!!! I'm even wondering if I should pack a separate suitcase with my swimsuits and sundresses. Those would be hard to do without next month. Worse case, we camp out permanently at the au naturale beach.

Please send a few prayers our way. A rain dance would also be appreciated.
