I am hoping that all my fellow Coloradoans are safe. I saw this video and although it is 8 minutes long, there are parts of it that are really impressive, and frightening and make me feel an even greater admiration for firefighters and emergency responders. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWGK4CiWxeM

I just drove this road last Sunday. It is so hard to believe that large portions of it are now gone. And it is only one of several canyons/areas that have met the same fate in the last few days. :cry:
And the sun it may be shining . . . but there's an ocean in my eyes

    Bless those helping others there. What must it take of them.

    Rain giveth, and rain taketh away. Nature for better or worse, I guess.

    With you on those good thoughts...and you keep safe too.

  • We sat at my son's football game yesterday, which seemed surreal considering the circumstances, and watched at least 8 chinook and black hawk helicopters flying over carrying people out. And the sun was shining yesterday. Now they are saying we are going to get 3-4 more inches. :nono:

    My son lives in Boulder, luckily no major problems where he is. Supposed to visit the end of October. Thoughts and prayers are with those affected.
  • My thoughts are with all those affected. It's amazing the destruction water can cause. Take care all.
    GIVE BLOOD
  • My prayers are with all those people who lost their homes. Hoping the stream feet from our Colorado condo didn't overflow.
    So, What you Giving ?........ (Thanks Speedy, Alesek, & Arq+friends)
    What You Giving

    I suggest you step out on your Porch.
    Run away my son. See it all. Oh, See the World!
