The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered. – Genesis

 

FOCUS:  Life Unscripted

“A Flood of Biblical Proportions”

“A Bona Fide 100-Year Storm”

“Canyon Washed Down to Bedrock”

“Roads Crumble; Town A Mess”

These are just some of the headlines used to describe the incredible weather phenomenon that has impacted northern Colorado the past few days.  More than 15 inches of rain has fallen in some areas of the Colorado Front Range since the stormy weather started a few days ago.  Flash flooding has been rampant.  Periodic announcements from the National Weather Service blast over the radio and television, warning ominously of ‘walls of water’ and advising people to ‘stay away or be swept away.’  We live in Denver, and have avoided the brunt of the flooding, but not everyone has been so fortunate.  Case in point:  the town of Boulder’s 25-square miles were awash in an estimated 4.5 BILLION gallons of water as of yesterday morning.  Overall, five people are confirmed dead, 200 people are unaccounted for.

…Mercy me.

  1. Oh this is just sad to read about… 15 inches is a lot of water… and having had my house flooded twice from raging rivers I feel sorry for those affected… hope the death toll doesn’t rise…
