Good Morning EX Community! Finally drying out around here! Unfortunately there are still 1253 people unaccounted for in Colorado. The worst hit yesterday were Longmont and Fort Morgan. Fort Collins had more bridge closures but we made it relatively well in the end. I just want to Thank You all for prayers and positive thoughts as well as the many folks who have been checking in with me since last week! Not once did it occur to me to smoke!

On the other hand, yesterday the smokers in our Non-Smoking building stood in the doorway smoking when I had to go to work. I ask if they could move and they refused!  I had to find an exit on the far side of my building and walk around the complex and through the parking lot in the rain so that I wouldn't be EXposed to their nasty second hand smoke! GRRRRR!!!!

Anyway, here's the news - I hope it fortifies your Quititude!
