By the time you see this post, I’m hoping the rains have stopped in Colorado, the search and rescue helicopters are back in the air, and the count of missing folks has come way down because of successful rescues.
Yesterday when I was writing this post, it was pouring down along the Front Range and in the hills, causing more damage and dangerous conditions. Our house is high and pretty far from the rivers, so I’m hoping we stay dry. Lots of other folks need our help, so if you feel the urge to give, The Salvation Army and the Red Cross are doing great work here. This is a link from The Denver Post that lists opportunities to help and advises ways to avoid scams.
Here’s the link to an aerial video of my part of Colorado from a few days ago: http://www.coloradoan.com/article/20130913/NEWS01/130913002/VIDEO-Aerial-tour-of-Fort-Collins-and-Loveland-floods
