The Boulder, Colo. area is reeling after being inundated by record rainfall, with more than half a year’s worth of rain falling over the past three days. During those three days, 24-hour rainfall totals of between 8 and 10 inches across much of the Boulder area were enough to qualify this storm as a 1 in 1,000 year event, meaning that it has a 0.1 percent chance of occurring in a given year.
What a complete load of crap.
I’ve been out touring Fort Collins on my bicycle most of the day. It is one of the most beautiful days I have seen here. Sunshine, the grass is green, lots of water – and the only thing preventing life from being completely normal is the nanny-state blocking roads and trails off unnecessarily.
Biblical flood? More like an epic party weekend at CSU with their first home football game tomorrow.
