Flood of 2013!

CO has seen a crazy amount of rain this week… and it’s STILL raining. Luckily, our house is well above the water level. We have a stream, at the front of our property by the road, that has flooded part of our yard. Usually a steady trickle, our “stream” has grown into a river. Our driveway/covert seems to be holding up well, but some of our neighbor’s driveways have been flooded or washed away. Earlier today, Andy, Lucy, and I went for a walk down Upper Bear Creek Rd. (1/4 mile from our house) which follows along Bear Creek. The road was impassable about a half a mile down with significant flooding and structure damage. Most of the buildings in downtown Evergreen have escaped water damage, but our favorite bar/restaurant, “Cactus Jack’s,” is the first building downstream from the dam and was flooded.
