I read that no damage was done. How does a tornado do "no damage"?

Probably an EF-0 or EF-1 and nothing in its path.

A news source indicated that it could be the highest elevated tornado ever recorded in the US, near 10,000 ft elevation.

And in that part of Park County, or for that matter most of Park County, nothing is in anybody's path other than U.S. 285 dropping down the hill and coming into Jefferson, which might have 100 in population-heh, maybe. Fairplay has close to 700 in population. There aren't many mountain roads that are 2 lane that has a 70 m.p.h. speed limit, this one does.



When I lived in the Denver area, me and a couple high school buddies romped around South Park a fair amount every summer. Fished Jefferson Lake, Taryall Reservoir, Eleven Mile Reservoir, ah, those were the days! Very little population then, not much growth since, ya gotta really want to live at 9950 ft!


Now speaking of 285, I heard it was shut down for a time because of the thick smoke. Anyone whose doing the tourist thing would be wise to get on C-Dot's site, traveling some of the highways are a problem, and it doesn't get any worse than U.S. 160 from LaVeta Pass going west.

Wildfire near Ridgway, put out quickly.


Flash #Flood Watch is in effect from noon-9pm Friday for the burn scar areas of the Burro and 416 fires.

A little bit of good news. This afternoon, it rained over most of the Spring Fire area. It's now 35% contained, they want to open 160 in a couple of days. Gardner did not burn. Yesterday, the fire did blow up on Pass Creek Road though. I hate that, loved that old road.

They plan to re-open Hwy 160 tomorrow afternoon.

I feel super sluggish today. Wondering if it is the smoke in the area for the past couple days.
