Pic of the Week

A high school baseball game goes on in Colorado Springs
on Tuesday with the smoke from the Black Forest fire
as a backdrop.
I usually use an Associated Press photo here, but this one was floating around on Twitter last week. It apparently came from a Twitter user named Peter McEvoy and was taken during the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday at Pine Creek High School, which is (or was) just outside the evacuation area in the suburban sprawl of northern Colorado Springs.

Pine Creek got both games in. The school is now being used as a command center for firefighters, and the governor's helicopter has landed in the baseball field.
