The new year brought in snows that helped extinguish a massive fire in Boulder that burned down 1000 homes. Videos of scorched shopping centers and gutted suburbs emerge.
The culprit was the wind, knocking down a powerline that raised a 30 ft flame and spread quickly in the dry grass.
I get an email from the school district talking about a trouble shooting initiative for families affected by the blaze and also reiterating to keep the kids home if sick at all so that the schools can remain open during the omicron invasion.
Another shooting happens in downtown D in the bar district. Something that’s become commonplace but I don’t know anyone involved in this one.
As for me, I’ve just been working with my kid on the science kits we got for the holidays. Full steam ahead.
