Wildfires in Colorado in December

There should be snow on the ground, but it is not there.

Drought conditions and extreme winds are driving wildfires around Boulder, Colo., forcing two towns to evacuate: “Hundreds of Colorado homes lost and tens of thousands of residents told to evacuate due to fast-growing wildfires.”

This is but another indicator of climate change. This time of year you would expect to have snow blanketing many areas of Colorado and yet there is little of the white stuff to be found in the state that is in the middle of a significant, multi-year drought.

This is not supposed to be fire season in the West!
