100 Year Flood


Untitled

So you know, we got flooded. 

Big time. 

Not us personally. We have been pretty safe, but our neighbors in Boulder, Estes, Lyons, Longmont, Greeley etc. They were hit soooo hard.

Basements flooded.
Homes washed away. 
Roads collapsed. 

You've seen it all on the news, right?

It's tragic.

This is the creek that runs behind our neighborhood - just 1/4 mile away from our back door. It's usually only a few feet wide and winds along the trails where we ride our bikes, run, and play.

School was cancelled Thursday then again on Friday. Saturday the sun finally shown for a few hours then the rain started again on Sunday. We lost power quite a few times and had to reinforce some of the grading on our house that washed away while keeping an eye on our basement, windows, and drainage areas.

Easy had a hard time getting home on Friday night and was detoured quite a few times due to flooded roadways.

The girls have been troopers and were happy to spend the time together coloring, playing, and painting.

Church was cancelled on Sunday.

We took a walk while it was just sprinkling to the creek. It was raging.




This morning we woke to more overcast.

I was sooooo over it.

As noon approached the clouds lifted and the girls made a break for the sunshine.

And they didn't come back in until dinner.

School resumes Thursday.
