If the pattern is still pushing from the south, you north siders are gonna get more. Pretty consistent rain here in Denver this morning and feels really socked in.

Took an hour long detour around closure on 74 in evergreen only to get trapped on i70. Help! I've been stuck for 3 hours with a cranky 3 year old!

Some pix from Boulder:

1 Looking north in Eben Fine Park. The bike path is under the mud.
2 A house with a drainage problem
3 A car that should have stayed off this road
4 A shed that is blocking the road. Yes, it got pushed onto the road.
5 This is the library parking next to the creek
6 A badass Mog that I wish I got a better pic of

That mog could drive right into Estes I bet. Holy smokes that's big. Now THAT would be a fun daily driver. I bet people would quit cutting me off if I were in that. Heh...

I'm surprised that the flow gage actually goes this high:

Which is now apparently illegal since the area has been declared a disaster relief zone. That dude is nuts...

Thanks for the pics Bruce. How's your house/basement holding up?

Couch offroad is the Unimog. I know them very well. Have been rescuing people in Boulder "Longmont to be specific" the last 2 days. Give them the Mud salute if you see them again....
