Parts of Longmont, Colorado are flooded. One of the main recreational attractions in Longmont is Golden Ponds, which is a series of old gravel pits along the St. Vrain River – that are now filled with water. How did billions of eight inch diameter river rocks get transported 10 miles from the mountains?
Longmont sits on the flood plain of Lefthand Creek and the St. Vrain River. Much of the newer parts of the city are built on flood detritus. The older parts of the city are built on higher ground and do not flood. One hundred years ago, few people were foolish enough to build their house on the flood plain.
The climate isn’t getting worse, people are just getting increasingly stupid.
