Kristen Moeller used to love the sound of the wind.
But since she and her husband, David Cottrell, lost their home in the Lower North Fork Fire two weeks ago, the wind doesn’t sound the same.
“It used to sound so musical,” she said. “Now it sounds harsh.”
Moeller and Cottrell’s home off Kuehster Road and Rocky Top Trail was one of 27 houses turned to ash by the fast-moving fire that burned about 4,100 acres south of Conifer.
