It rained today in Boulder - blessed, blessed rain. I don't know how much of an impact it made on the fire - my guess is that it will definitely impede its spreading, but it's too much to ask for a vanquishing of our menace.
Today I also found out that the houses of my middle school math teacher and three of my good friends from high school have burned down, as well as the house another friend grew up in. Many more friends as well as my godfather have been mandatorily evacuated, and are obviously in danger of being destroyed.
It's not over yet. Here's to hoping.
