“Best First” Contest Update, Fires, and More

I heard from Reid about when he expects to announce the winners of the “Best First” contest. This is tentative, but he expects to notify me of the winners by this Friday, and I hope to have them posted here on Tuesday the 10th.

I know, I know. You’re reading this and thinking “Tentative?!” “Expects?!” “Hope to?!”

Yep, that’s what I said. And for good reason. I’m not holding him to either date because he’s got a lot going on right now.

If you recall, the first line of the bio paragraph from Reid’s interview on this blog reads, “Reid is fourth generation land and cattle.”

Reid is in the midst of the horrific wildfires gripping the nation right now, specifically the Arapaho Fire. On his Facebook page, he wrote that the situation is “… now grim. Beginning to move dozers, pumps, and other equipment up country to the cabins in the AM. Horse and cattle moving through opened gates down country.”

You can check out his page on Facebook for more details, pictures, and video. And, drop him a line of support and encouragement too if you’re so inclined.

Do you know anyone affected by the wildfires across America?

  1. Oh no! These fires have taken a toll on a lot of people! I do know a few people in thee midst of these fires, but not in as grave of danger as this. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

  2. Christi, it seems that mother nature is shaking us from our foundations … fires, floods and tornados .. strange happenings across the country. It must be one of those years when “she” shakes us to our core. Perhaps to remind us how small we are or how fragile this gift of life truly is … and how easily we can lose it.

    Look forward to the conclusion of your contest 🙂

    • There is no dirth of bizarre occurences–both weather/natural disaster, and the man made type. Strange disturbance on all levels of the Force, it seems to me, Florence. Thanks for the thoughts…For now all appears under control for our palces–unfortunately the same can not be said for many others up and down the Rockies.
