This was the week of tragedy here in Colorado.

Yesterday, a downed power line sparked what would become a massive wildfire in the foothills of Boulder. Several were evacuated and some homes were destroyed. Winds gusts throughout the day were clocked at over 100 mph, thus aiding in the fire's spread.

Then, just when you think it couldn't get any worse, this happens. A man somehow began to fall from the ski lift at Vail, but caught himself. By his pants? Luckily he was rescued. Unluckily, camera phones exist.

Yes, definitely a devastating week to be had here in Colorado. But perhaps some good can come from all of this. Lessons learned. So, may this post be a reminder to all you out there to be careful. Watch out for wildfires and always, always, always wear long underwear when you go skiing. This is SteveHappens reporting. SteveHappens News. Back to you, SteveHappens.

Shut up! Is that guy with his pants down for real? That is jaw-dropping funny! But probably not for him. Bummer.

It's as real as the day is long, my friend. But I guess he should be counting his lucky stars that he didn't fall. But man, if he would'a just put on some long johns that morning.

I think he should just be grateful that the wildfire was somewhere else.......although frostbite can be a problem
