HELP! Who's around Santa Fe now?

We are set to take off for there from Chicago on Monday. My wife just read about wild fires and campground evacuations. Anyone, what's up? Should we go? We are also heading through tornado country. What do you all think?

Don't know about Santa Fe, but you should definitely buy a weather alert radio and have it on when you travel. We bought one from Amazon, it saved our butts once in Florida.
Here's what we bought:
Amazon.com: Midland HH50 Pocket Weather Radio: Electronics

We have one as part of our stereo. Has a weather channel. Thanks, baraff.

Just left Santa Fe yesterday but not due to the fires. If the fires keep burning as well as they did when we were there you will experience some smoke or haze in Santa Fe. But they are expecting rain and cooler temps with less winds which will allow them to get a handle on these two fires which are well away from downtown Santa Fe. Campground evacuations are small sites in the remote fire areas.

I would definitely make the trip without a second thought. Enjoy Santa Fe, it's a great town!

Well we are here and it was beautiful. Little smokey clouds but ok. The trip was an experience though with winds and rain over 25% of the time. Wow!

Every state has a 1-800 number and website for their DOT Dept of Transportation which will give you road conditions of the highways you plan to travel. That with a weather radio from Radio Shack should keep you well informed of what is ahead.
