One of the best things about running the Land Desk is the community of readers, who must be the smartest group of folks around. Your comments on the stories are always astute and a number of you also write to me to keep me on my toes, correcting errors or pointing out things in my dispatches that I may have missed. Others send me news tips or ideas for future stories, many of which I’ve used. Just this past week, for example, one reader sent me down the wormhole on the period of records used to determine the median snowpack levels (more on this soon), and another—a relative of mine—informed me that in the 1860s our shared ancestors had a farm and ranch on Coal Creek outside of Boulder, very close to the ignition point of the devastating Marshall Fire.
I am tremendously grateful for the feedback.
Please keep it coming, starting now: Today I’m looking for your input on what general—or specific—topics, areas, and issues you’d like the Land Desk to look into in the next 12 months. Also, what kinds of stories are your faves? Are you a Data Dump nerd? A personal essay aficionado? A straight news type?
