No, it's up and down the whole front range. Boulder to Lyons seems to be the worst though. It's bad - roads are washed away and/or under feet of water. All the creeks and rivers are raging. I've never seen flooding like this before.

I'm hunkered down at home in Longmont - luckily my neighborhood is above water but just a few blocks down they are under water. It's devastating to see the widespread damage, like a war zone. Military helicopters buzzing around that are rescuing thousands that are stranded just 5 miles from here (Lyons, entire town destroyed and evacuating). Humvees everywhere helping with rescue and patrolling dangerous areas. And the rain started up again today....
It's really bad. My thoughts & prayers are with all those who are affected by this disaster.

I should have listened to my own advice not to drive thru puddles... well I didn't really have a choice. Headed to birthday brunch and hit a hidden pothole under water and completely blew out my right rear tire today. Of course, no spare. I do have an electric pump but after pumping air and turning it off I could hear air blowing out of a hole I couldn't see. I had to get towed to Discount Tire (not open Sundays and no other tire place had my size tire). I just hope I didn't bend the rim - looks like I'm going to get an extra rim to put the other rear tire on for a spare. The rears were just getting to the ware-bar so I essentially need new rears anyways but this was unexpected and a pain in the ass - and on my birthday ;-(
Oh well, this is nothing compared to all those who are really suffering right now so I'll stop whining....
