Hickenlooper, who was greeted by a throng of fans, said Colorado has had one of the worst fire seasons “we’ve ever seen.”
But he was optimistic and also commended Mayor Steve Bach for how he has handled things during the Waldo Canyon wildfire.
“He has done a great job coordinating local efforts,” he said.
The governor was also his quirky self.
“If I could make an executive order for rain, I would do it tomorrow,” he said. “I’d do it right now. I’d do it in a minute.”
