Not good

Pray this isn't the scene that is seen. There are massive fires in Boulder tonight and I am writing this from a Marriott with my and cat included.

I left the bikes behind. F-it, right?

Honestly, all will be fine. I suspect smoke damage, but as I closed the garage door while pulling out from my driveway as Boulder's finest watched me exit the 'hood. I saw a glimpse of my prized bikes as the electric door closed shut. "Adios," I said.

Again, all will be just fine. But this time, just a glimpse...a mere moment in time....I can see how families must react in situations like this. I can not even imagine what those who lose everything must go through. But the heart rate certainly got elevated this evening as we were evacuated.

Fingers crossed (pun intended...humor and perspective) for you, yours, and your bikes.
