Fire Near The Fort
Zi Zai Dermatology is based in Fort Collins, Colorado and we love the area where we live and work. Right now our region is experiencing one of the worst wildfires in Colorado history. Friends and family who live in the once-beautiful canyons just west of town have lost their homes and their land (but thankfully not their lives).
The winds have temporarily shifted away from Fort Collins, so my family can breathe a bit easier for the moment (the smoke was thick last night) but we are concerned for those who were evacuated from their homes; the displaced pet animals, livestock and wildlife; and especially the fire fighters and emergency teams fighting to keep us all safe. I can hear the helicopters, Balckhawks and slurry bombers flying back and forth overhead. They are risking their lives every moment and we are grateful for them and also worried about their safety. The weather here is obscenely dry and still windy and the fire continues to burn with zero containment. There is no moisture in the weather forecast for the week. Latest word is that they expect the fire to burn all summer! If you can spare just a moment in your day, please send some good Qi to all those affected by this scary fire. Prayers, love, positive thoughts – all are welcome. Maybe even a rain dance if you know how to do one!
