Warmest June ever recorded in Denver and wildfire a little too close to home

The National Weather Service put together this list of records that Denver broke in June with extreme heat.
Climatologically, July should be warmer than June.  Let's hope we get a break this year!

Lastly, June was dry.  Let's just say everything has been dry in 2012.  Our snowpack was extremely low.  Here is a timelapse of the Flagstaff fire that got started by a lightning strike combined with dry and windy conditions, that got to within two miles of my home.  We're still smelling smoke on a regular basis after five days of fire, but it is relatively contained.  Thanks to Dustin Henderlong for posting this.
