Sounds like Lefthand is raging over its banks and across the road in places. Has anyone heard a rumor that Barker Dam was damaged/broken?

Can we as a club be helping any in this mess?
Daniel, you'll have to go back down there when levels return to normal and post other pics for those of us that don't get down there often...

fourmile/sugarloaf/boulder canyon are all blocked by rock slides and washouts. Boulder has been kinda nuts here today. People beign dumb and getting in boulder creek, tubing in dumb spots, driving in dumb places. so far our house is good, the creek has not overflowed which is nuts. It got within a foot of overflowing (15' up from normal) and the blue notch hot tub pump is workign overtime to keep water down around the garage. The mountain canyons are really in bad shape though. If anybody up there needs help let us know I can run up and pump/sand bag/ dig.

Abe, Robbie, how are yall? Drew (eggesledder) who lives at sugarloaf came down this morning but is stuck due to washouts.

texted a little while ago with Robbie: "Stuck at home, road is washed out real bad" . Sounds like he's fine.

Robbie reports being fine but road washed out. Somewhere along Sunshine canyon.

I have seen Cherry Creek far higher in summer deluges so we can feel good about that storm channel. Though I did just get a post by Denver about an evacuation area.

I will get "after" pictures when the water drops

It really varies. Parts of the path are still dry, others 3-5' I'd say, and fast moving.

Got sent home early, everyone freaking about about closures. Raining like mad down at I-70 & Peoria.. not even raining here at 120th in Broomfield, just came in from playing b-ball in the street outside. Yet only a couple miles north Dillon/144th washed out.
