East Peak Rain Showers

Published by at 8:08 am under General Information

A wonderfull blessing of rain last night throughout Cuchara Valley and extended surrounding area.  Nearly a half inch. Unfortunately, it also brought a 30 minute lightning show with it. So there may be some new hot spots but we have the people and equipment here to handle it. Forecast calls for afternoon shows every day for the next week!  Whoopee.

Several hot-shot crews are still staying up on the mountain in spike camps full-time, digging in fire lines and to be more accessible to the fire. Hazardous conditions so usually an EMT-Paramedic on the mountainside with them. Helicopters already airborne this morning looking for any new problem areas.
FYI, correction on Homes lost to the fire. Only 13 homes, other structures were barns, etc. None lost in our immediate area of La Veta and Cuchara Valley. And Wahatoya 360 is officially back open now.
