Boulder County has gotten almost 7 inches in the past 24 hours, and that means flash floods. The student housing next to the central creek in Boulder has been evacuated, and so has the place where I would normally work today, a senior living community with a large and complicated population.

My man and I live up in the mountains, where you'd think there'd be less of a problem because of higher ground. Hah! No. Let me share the wonders of this torrential rain with you.
This is our road.
This is the waterfall coming around the retaining wall, diverting water down our road so that it doesn't go straight into the house.
There's me standing next to where the other side of the retaining wall is failing, and the little sinkhole that's getting a little bigger every hour.
Actually both exciting and scary. Keep your fingers crossed for us, please. We're pretty much trapped at home because the canyon leading to our road is having rockfall issues, and going into town wouldn't do much good anyway since the roads are a mess, so. Hell, at least I'm not at work today. Which, oh yeah, evacuated, so! Holy crap! I hope you all are doing great!
