Just an update: I’m still okay. Many, many people are not. This is one of those “everybody knows somebody affected” situations. Happily, I got word that a couple of my friends who live in the mountains are okay. Stranded, but okay. The roads are opening. My niece and sister-in-law are visiting my parents and I’ll get to see them tomorrow. The ending of the Flash Flood Warning has been a huge mental relief. We’re still on watch, but it’s not the constant feeling that something terrible is about to happen.
My troubles have been so minor I feel ridiculous even mentioning them. This is going to take so long and so much effort to recover from, I hardly know where to start. Well, I started here: Help Colorado Now. If you’ve been wanting to know how you could help or where you could donate, please check it out.
Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers.
