Rains of "Biblical Proportions"

Last week, Boulder County, Colorado experienced a flood.

A big flood.

A great flood.

A flood that will go down in the history books as one of the most destructive natural disasters in Colorado history.

And I was alive for it. Our house and property were not destroyed, but the same can not be said for the thousands of people across multiple counties who have been "inconvenienced" to "decimated."

What started out as nice, wet weather, progressed into "wow, look at it rain." Then curiosity took hold
when our office was closed Thursday for rain. When the office remained closed on Friday, I began to have a niggling feeling that all was not well in Longmont, Colorado.

Colorado has been experiencing hot weather and drought conditions this year. The 11+ inches of rain we received in 4 days took care of the drought and reversed the situation as rivers and creeks flooded their banks, city streets became canals, and beautiful fields of corn, grass, alfalfa and more -- right on the brink of harvest -- were devastated beyond redemption. We've become a Federal disaster area.

I can't begin to describe the loss our community has felt. Please pray that unaccounted for people are found, homes can be salvaged, our infrastructure is repaired and rebuilt in a timely manner. So many people lost so much.

Your prayers, encouragement and support mean a lot.
