Colorado Springs got very high wind gusts with very little rain. Denver has gotten some rain, but has no fires. Boulder got both rain and lightning. Fort Collins and the nearby High Park Fire are getting rain along with flash flood warnings, since the blackened slopes won’t hold any water. Still, everything is a lot cooler, a lot more humid, and it smells like … hope.
