Spring Watch

Spring is actually here and Colorado is showing off about it.  Azure blue skies and air that feels like it is full of promises and places to go, accompanied by daylight that is stretching into the early evening is making us all feel like we are made for outdoor living again.  Soil is being turned in the beds and mulch being purchased by the truck load in anticipation of the crystal warmth of the spring sun – still just a brush of heat rather than the prickly fingers of the summer sun.  With all the grilling activities and general fun it can be easy to get careless, but the dry conditions and the windy days make the Colorado mountains ripe for fire, nearly every day bringing a new story of wild fire and homes threatened.  The volunteer firefighters in Evergreen, Elk Creek, Indian Hills, Platte Canyon, Inter Canyon and North Fork will have their hands full this spring season.  As a community we must be vigilant in our attention to potential fire danger and serious about mitigation around our homes and businesses.  Love the outdoors – enjoy the beautiful weather, always mindful that what each one of us can make a difference for all of us.
