Cooler Weather

Published by under General Information

Woke this morning to a very nice 54 degree temp.  The scattered clouds should keep us comfortable all week.  Scattered rain showers are just that-“scattered”.  Seems to be a few brief showers across the County now nearly every afternoon but more areas remain dry.

Celtic Concert

Published by under General Information

We enjoyed a very nice dinner out last evening and then went to the fund raiser concert for this years Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival.  The performance of McPeake was fantastic.  Not just the usual jigs and reels either.  Wonderful instrumentals of fiddle, pipes and whistles.  With classic cross-over originals titled “The Lament for Rory” and “Will Ye Go Lassie Go”.  Gets us all looking forward to the 7th annual festival to be held this year Sept. 22-25th.  This year’s theme is “from the Appalachians to the Rockies“.  More Celtic info at www.CelticMusicFest.com

Clearing Skies

Published by under General Information

After several days of smokey hazey skies it is nice to wake up and breath cool clear air this morning.  The forest fire down at Los Alamos NM has been pumping its smoke our way all week.  That, combined with hotter than normal temps. has made for an uncomfortable past few days.  But all looks much better this morning so hopefully great 4 th weekend weather is in store for us.

Commissioners Approve Shell Gas Well

Published by under General Information

The Huerfano County Commissioners have unanimously approved the Shell permit for an exploratory gas well west of La Veta. They reduced the water testing provision recommended by P & Z but did increase the Bonding requirements. Other prev. proposals such as prohibiting gas flaring, conducting seismic survey of faults and providing disclosure of fracking chemicals “before” drilling rather than after, were all ignored by Commissioners as they were also overlooked by P & Z.  The new permit is only for this first exploratory well and any subsequent new drilling activity must again come before the Commission for approval.
