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.

The Springs is having issues too....
I drove I-25 and E-470 today...lots of standing water and water running across the roads.
Castle Rock is good to go today...another day of this and who knows.

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....
