flood 2

September 16, 2013

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.

    I’m sorry. I clicked your link and got a Google-like page that included links to many pages about Colorado and some about help, but nothing else.

    I’m glad to know you’re okay.

    I remember 13 years ago when Toledo got flooded. The street me and my buddy needed to cross to get home looked like a river. At first we thought we could get across…until we saw a bus literally _floating_ down the street. After seeing that, we decided to head back uphill and wait it out.

    Floods ain’t no joke, that’s for sure.
