The 5 day forecast for the GJ area is for the temps to cool a whole 5 degrees for the next few days. Yesterdays high here in Fruita was 97. And Jazz is right regarding Texas, specifically the Fort Worth area, which has turned into a dangerous situation.

As for the my fire prediction, we lucked out one more time. Still, the pieces are place for a major, major fire event in Colorado. As I noted elsewhere, Arizona and New Mexico took their turn at that this year--we certainly could be next. We could be like Texas--people I talk to down there are actually praying for a couple of tropical storms or even a hurricane to hit down there to break the drought.

There is little sign of fall here yet. The weather feels more like the first of August than the first week of September.
It is inevitable that all the pine beetle trees will burn at some point, which they should, but hard to say when that will happen or if it will happen en masse.

Personally I always preferred the warmer, drier Septembers rather than ones that are cold, rainy and with early snows killing the foliage. Plenty of time for winter later.

At my house on the north end of COLO SPGS, it was 49F when I got up today. Yummm!

Nice cooling rain this afternoon it's 55 degrees at 7pm. All the windows are open and I am enjoying the fresh cool air. Of course neighbors are complaining and one has a fire in his fireplace. Geeze.

Spent earlier today fishing at Delta's Confluence Park, a nice 70 acre lake. Maybe one day I'll figure out how to catch some of the huge trout I see jumping.

I've come to a solution for the mosquito problem here. I don't think I saw this many mosquitos when I lived in Arkansas, they are insane here in Delta, so since there's also a bagallion grasshoppers, I figure if we can train the grasshoppers to eat the mosquitoes, they will be gone, then we can train the snakes here to eat the grasshoppers. Now to get rid of the snakes...

Spend the day in Ridgway today (I miss that town). Photos posted on another thread. Well, the new EVIL Dollar Store has broken ground and is supposed to open before Christmas. Gol durn Chinese Communists! There's a new Verizon Wireless store, lots of new art and sculptures here and there, crisp cool mountain air and snow on the San Juans. CDOT is planning to 4 lane HWY 550 from Colona to Ouray and is beginning in Colona now, traffic one lane there with flaggers.

Alias, all is not beer and roses in my former small mountain town. It appears some villian managed to get several debit and credit card numbers and has been using them. I, along with a few thousand others, got hit and thank goodness for Citizens State Bank there, who caught it and stopped the transactions. So a new debit card, and a report filed with the town marshal. The fiends! Picked up a Panny's Pizza and had a really nice drive back to Delta. Sunshine, 56 degrees in Ridgway, 72 degrees in Delta. Leaves are turning yellow and gold and falling.
