Summer hasn't even started yet nor have the summer dry lightning storms. Hopefully the monsoons will be wet this year.

That was a pretty ridiculous thunderstorm/monsoon we had here last night..

Is that normal for a Colorado summer?

Does anyone find it curious that the cause of the Waldo fire is "human caused", but a year later nobody has been named? The Black Forest fire is has been stated to be human caused, but they still haven't said whether it was accidental or intentional. Wasn't it last summer there was someone running around the Woodland Park area setting multiple fires?

If these fires are ignited by terrorists, would they be claiming responsibility or stay hush?

When the Japanese bombarded the western US with incendiary balloons during WWII, reports of balloon landing were kept hush so that the Japanese would have no idea if they were being successful. One of them landed just outside Fort Collins, but wasn't made public until after the war was over.

Yes.

I posted about this in the Waldo Fire thread - remember that the government "leaders" were "briefed" about the cause of the fire by fire investigators, with the public to be informed of those "briefings" 30 days later - the public was never however, informed of the content of those "private" briefings.

I provided links in the Waldo thread.

I also indicated that most recent insurance policies have a "terrorism clause" - if the fire are a result of terrorist activities - the policies would not pay. Also presented in the Waldo thread.

These fires will probably chalked up to "Workplace Violence" or some other non-terrorism "classification."

You should see what they put in the al-qaida magazine.. quite a few different methods of starting wildfires.

Fires among other things like traffic accidents, etc.

I think this thread just tipped the scale of >51% "foreigness" for Prism tracking.

For good measure, we may as well toss in plutonium, IED, pressure cooker, ammonium nitrate......

The whole thing is very sad. While difficult to defend against, knowing the true cause would allow locals to better protect themselves.

It won't show up because DomEOD spelled al-Qaeda funny.

I often use the fake name Al Kita when getting Safeway and king Soopers cards. If they have a card discount I always say I don't have one and request to fill one out - this delays the check out process and hold up the line until I'm done. It is my way to protest such cards - I want the same low price w or w/o a card and will cost such markets time and effort for requiring there use for discounts.

It is also fun to use a name like Grzywacz at the places that like to add a personal touch when checking out - Thank you Mr. - how do you pronounce that?...

Sigh:

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. - A wildfire is burning in Jefferson County, prompting immediate evacuations for residents within a 3-mile radius of the intersection of South Foxton Road and Platte River Road.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office is calling the fire the Chair Rock Fire and said the safest evacuation routes are along County Road 126 or Foxton Road.

"Wildfire", the word is more often than not used as a misnomer. The Waldo Canyon Fire wasn't a wildfire, neither is the Black Forest Fire. But everyone calls them "wildfires", as if they're random phenomena that Colorado's more natural residential areas are incredibly vulnerable to just by pure happenstance. It is rather revealing that the media and therefore the public prefer to focus on the problem of residential vulnerability to "wildfires" (fuels, dryness, etc.), not the vulnerability to or complete lack of accountability for human-caused fires. Even so, parsimony leaves little room for Al-Qaeda's involvement when every other jackass in the forest is disrespecting universal and common sense fire rules. Left to our own devices, Coloradans have little difficulty burning down our own homes.
