This fire has shut down interstate seventy, which is the main east-west highway into and through the mountain communities, and this shutdown is causing major issues for businesses and commuters, and because of this is the number one fire priority the nation to try and get it contained and the highway has been shut down for more than a week already.

Some research has shown that exposure to air pollution can worsen the outcomes of catching the virus, and while fire smoke can irritate weakened the lungs and immune system making someone more susceptible to infection the state suggestion to stay inside to avoid the smoke they say is now even more important because it can also help stop the spread of Code Nineteen as well.

"We just want to get your expertise and feel in general way. I know you've driven I seventy from the mountains into Denver countless times, and it's got to be a bit of a knuckle biter. I live up in that area. So I see him coming down the mountain all the time thinking, it's gotta be pretty scary. How should a trucker handle that scary stretch down the hill? You're right. It's a one hundred and fifty miles from Glenwood springs to Denver. Heading east is probably the most challenging bit of interstate roadway in America. So how would you handle it? So first thing is you've got to know that you're going to be in that knuckle biter for the next four hours when you get to the you've got three different feud hills. When you get to the top of each one. There's a pullover where you can check your brakes and and look over your vehicle. So you want to do all of those things for sure. Yeah. You say you should always check your brakes before coming down the hill. What is checking your brakes entail? So you'll you'll pull over there's plenty of places to do that you're going to take a walk around the truck you're going to be the first thing you can do is smell and see if I mean, always smell them if they're getting hot be looking for smoke. Then you, you know, you really know you have a problem there's actually break arms underneath if you want to be super serious, you get down beneath pull the break arm. And and see what kind of play that you have there. You're gonna check your air compressor hoses? And you're going to check your gauges to make sure that you've got enough air before you head down Finn. You mentioned that smell. I smell it all the time I quoted to like burning clutch. But obviously I knew it's the brakes when I smell that as a fellow driver on the road. Does that mean the truck is not safer that the brakes are just a lot of pressure? When you're making that move down the hill. Never hear that. You should never smell that smell. If you if anyone who takes that, Tennessee hill down into Denver as you say they've seen smoke, and they've smell they smell boast breaks. You wanna stay behind that truck until that Trump is down at the bottom. You don't want to be in front of him. You tell me you've never had your brakes. Go out I'm knocking on wood right now. I hope that never happens to you. But how are truckers taught to handle slowing down quickly? And what do they taught to do? If the brakes go out. So you've got the truck has a has a machine inside called the Jake break in that sexually air compression braking system. So the engine slows you down. So I'm going to be make sure that I'm geared properly. I'm going to be in fifth year. I'm not going to go more than say twenty eight miles an hour. I really won't have to use the break. I might just have to touch it. Every once in a while on the way down if I'm properly, and I have my Jake break com. San I know we're talking about the vehicle, but how important are the road signs for your safety and for your success as a driver because apparently it sounds like the driver in the accident. Couldn't decipher read the phone of the roadside. So how important is that that you're paying attention to those environs as well? Well, there's no there's no sign system in the country. That's as clear and stark as the ones coming down from Genesee and Floyd hill. You know, you've got at least five or six of them and then towards the bottom. It says truckers do not be fooled. Steep grade and curves next mile and a half. So I mean, there's I mean it's clear it's clearly marked that this is going to be serious piece of roadway and before we run Finn. There's a trucker code when you get into a situation there where you might hurt or kill other people. What are you supposed to do? Well, it's it's actually it's part of the trucking folklore you get you get out of it. You you take yourself out of the mix. You get off the road, take take your own life instead of taking someone else's you get out of the mix, and you take the truck away from all of the other civilians, then I can't tell you how much you're inside has been. It's been a lot. Thank you so much. Take care. Right. Murphy. His book is the long haul. Truckers tales of life on the road.

Ski season getting extended at several resorts. Thanks to plenty of snow pack, however with the warmer temperatures just around the corner. Should we be thinking about flood risks checking in now with Colorado state university? Climatologist rush Schumacher. Good morning. Good morning. I know we've been dry of late here in the state when with all this winter snow in moisture has that helped curb that on now do we have the other problem where we can't get the water into the ground because it's not it's too dry. Can't saturate and hold it on. Yeah. The I mean, certainly with the huge amount of snow. We've got sitting up in the mountains right now. It's it's something we've been thinking about in terms of the potential flood risk for the spring. The good news is you know, as my predecessor in this position on dusk. And would say the pack in our mountain tends to be well behaved, and it's it's pretty unusual to get, you know, a super rapid meltoff, even if it warms up just because of the high elevation, and so it never gets that warm that quick up in the mountains. But you know, as you mentioned, it sort of we gotta think of both sides of this where on the one hand the reservoirs were were so depleted after last year being so dry that there's plenty of room to put the water in. And and so that you know that should mitigate flood risks. The the the the soils are dry, and so we can hopefully just sort of have this melt be normal one. Where things are are progressing at a at a, you know, the usual slow and steady pace that'll help recharge those soils and anniversary any any big flood threat here in Colorado. In most cases are worse floods from summer thunderstorms, not from snow melt, which is the opposite of what we've seen in in the midwest the last week or so it could just snowpack be good news for the watershed. Yeah. Absolutely. The water supply forecast has after just a dreadful year last year in southern Colorado. And and really throughout the mountains. It's been you know, it's been a hundred and eighty degree turnaround. Just epic snowfall in the mountains where at a hundred and forty percent of statewide snowpacks as of yesterday and that does so that doesn't even account for the storm. That's going on right now the forecast flow into lake Powell, which is sort of the end point of all of our all of our.
