The winter was dry. Even the late spring storms that we got didn't really help to fill reservoirs and much of the Denver and beyond area is under 2-day week watering restrictions.
This summer hasn't started off too bad. In fact, it felt like winter was hanging on forever (see late spring storms) and then all of the sudden a switch was flipped. It got hot, it got dry, and just a few days ago the fires erupted.
Just once, I would like to turn on the TV and not hear "the most destructive wildfire ever to hit Colo.rado".
We have not had a good run it seems. I love my state. I want to be able to camp and have campfire!
