CU Boulder, Boulder schools closed, St. Vrain Valley Schools closed.
Wow. Prayers up for everybody there.
Nothing like getting a quarter of our annual rain in 3 days.
The Rockies, which are naturally rather dry, have been getting very wet the last couple of weeks. The terrain makes this volume of water a real risk.
Plus, people have been building fancy homes in those pretty places next to ‘dry’ river beds. Ooops.
I live downtown, 6.6” last night and it just started again. The grounds been saturated since yesterday.
I’ve had standing water in my yard since noon yesterday, sump pumps running full time, pumping it out so it can flow back in. Got a bucket on the kitchen floor, not sure where the leak is.
Cat’s been on the front porch, and the dog isn’t happy about his ‘drop zone’ being flooded.
We’ll see if I can make it up the Diag to Longmont for work.
Have leftists tried to blame this on the recall yet?
Get some CU Boulder students up there to put their fingers in any holes that open up
I’ve got 3” of water in my cellar, only thing down there is my water heater and furnace. They’re both flooded.
The one pump wasn’t keeping up, I waded through till I found the spare pump and got it going. There’s no place too pump it, not enough hose to get it out to the street, so I’m pumping into the yard so it can flow back in.
There’s not a pump for sale anywhere in Boulder County.
The flood sirens have been on for a couple of hours, they say the creek has peaked. I’m in the Goose Creek FP, it’s working .
My house was built in 1924, first floor is 3” above grade, doesn’t help the root cellar.
