It is truly unbelievable here. We are high and fine but everyone anywhere near a creek, gulch etc are in a world of hurt. My Son in law works for a restoration company and have 10-100 times more calls than they can respond to. Some folks are going to be marooned for weeks, before they can be evacuated. Having an RV if it didn't float away (many mobile homes have) may actually be an advantage for the frig, propane etc.

Donate to the Red Cross, if you want to help.

We live a qtr mile from the poudre. Water is getting close to the house but would need to rise a couple more feet to get over berm we have in place. Went and filled the trailer with water in case we either needed it to live in for a couple day or they shut down sewer or water systems like in Evans.

I have a friend work camping at Estes. one park was under water, roads washed away, and lots od damaged bulinds, they lost cell service, but still had power.
He said water is going down but lots of roads closed due to damage and most of the town ended up under water.
