Not OT because there will be a lot of home repair needed.
Videos of the Colorado flooding from various sources.
More videos on one page that I've ever seen before.
Yes, they were showing pictures of the flooding on both the CBC and CTV
television networks today here in Winnipeg.
Where I live, the terrain is flat so that floods spread out all over the
southern half of the province and last for weeks. In the mountains,
though, the water gets channeled into the middles of valleys, and so you
have a smaller flood area, but with very much faster flowing water and
much worse damage in that area. We never see cars and houses floating
down the river with our floods. Bridges never get knocked off their
structural supports in our floods. All we ever get are flooded
basements and boil water advisories, but that's bad enough. Rarely is a
road ever washed out here due to a flood. The road gets flooded, and a
week or two later the water subsides, and a week or two later the
government opens the road back up to vehicular traffic. Cows walk to
higher ground in our floods.
I did comment on another list, be nice to send
some of this water to California. Where they
are still fighting forest fires.

Yet, the south-eastern corner of CO is still suffering "extreme" (D3)
level drought conditions, as did most of the state one year ago. I'm
in the headwaters of the Arkansas R valley, dead center in the CO
Rockies, and the river has risen a little over seven inches in the
last 24hrs. Far from crisis levels. Not even Spring runoff levels.
Fifty percent chance (almost certain) of more rain today and tomorrow.
We need it, badly.
I live about 50 ft from river, but am about 50 above it, so no
problem, here. Unfortunate for N CO, but flash floods after a drought
are pretty common.
Even without watching the videos, the still pictures of the damage are
really frightening. My compassion to all who live there. Another poster
comments that those who were prepared should do OK, if they have the
necessary home storage of water, food, light, etc. Better to evacuate,
and live with relatives for two weeks while this blows over. Might come
home to a washed away house, and looted and stolen, too.

No, no, no, no, no, It's "Climate Change". The P.L.L.C.F. found that
their claim of "Global Cooling" and later their howling about "Global
Warming" was not supported by any scientific facts. They changed their
chant to "Climate Change" now claiming that man is affecting the weather
worldwide and we must do something about it. It has absolutely nothing
to do with protecting the planet, fuzzy bunnies, polar bear cubs
or flowers on the prairie. It's all about control, they desire more and
more excuses to intrude into the personal lives of the citizenry and to
gain control of business and industry using laws based on "Junk Science"
that they can use in a punitive manner against those who oppose them. If
anyone has been paying attention to their vile tactic of causing "The
Dumbassification Of America" by getting control of the educational
system, it's quite clear that their ultimate agenda is to gain control
of all world governments. Oh well, I probably won't be around to witness
the end of a great nation but the P.L.L.C.F. will never give up and will
continue to attack the very fabric of our society. o_O
Oh yea, some may not know what P.L.L.C.F. means, it's Progressive
Liberal Leftist Commiecrat Freaks. Saves on a lot of typing for my
There is a difference between Democrats and Commiecrats. Commiecrats are
the radicalized version of Democrats hiding inside the Democrat Party.
Many but not all are O.B.K., Obama Butt Kissers and not all O.B.K. are
Commiecrats, they're just misguided citizens who fell for
the sales pitch and got a pig in a poke. ^_^
