Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Thoughts with our future hosts in Boulder

Friday September 10, 2010

There’s a lot of football between now and the October 2nd game at Colorado, but residents of Boulder have a lot more on their minds this weekend. The largest wildfire in Boulder County history is currently raging in the highlands to the west of Boulder. The town itself and the CU campus itself isn’t threatened yet, but the fire has displaced many residents and has captured the attention of everyone in the area. As many as 9,000 residents are on standby for possible evacuation. At least 169 homes have been destroyed, and the fire currently affects nearly 6,500 acres in the hills and canyons west of Boulder. Westerly winds have pushed smoke across the town, and strong winds make it a difficult fight.

  • Reading the Boulder paper, this area is really taking a hit, and it’s not over yet. Those folks going out to the game may very well see evidence of the firse. I just hope it doesn’t get into Boulder.
