A few weeks ago, the worst fire in Colorado’s history broke out. In my town. It was like Armageddon raining fire down upon us. A bunch of people lost their homes, a few people died. It was definitely a scary few days.
After the very professional firefighters and city government folks began to gain control, some levity was in order. I got on Twitter and joked that I wasn’t going to shave until this end-of-the-world stuff quieted down. And a local report named Barrett Tryon joined in. The following is the Tweet stream.
