If It's Not Fire, It's Water!
However, Boulder, Fort Collins, Estes Park, and all the front range cities to the north of us are suffering. Even Aurora to our east has been hit hard. Colorado Springs has suffering flooding all summer due to the terrible fires of this year and last year, leaving the ground bare and subject to mudslides. Several small towns are completely surrounded by water and isolated.
I have heard that if it were colder, this storm would be dumping about 8 feet of snow on us. It is not unusual to have snow in September here in Colorado.
Three days ago, we were complaining about two solid weeks of temperatures over 90 degrees. Look at us now!
