so, about the flood…

Yah, so, the flooding in Colorado. Did you happen to catch that on the news? It happened. It’s real. And it is bad.

We were very fortunate to stay dry, but areas only a few miles to our east, north, and west were not as lucky. I feel very compelled to help, since this is all basically in my “backyard.”

This is a creek. Not a river. It is usually not even visible from where I’m standing. It’s typically pretty shallow and narrow. It is never defined as “raging.” Also, those are trees against a bridge that has almost been overtaken by water. This creek is about a mile from where we live. And those people are not being smart, for the record.

20130917-192114.jpgI’ve been trying to provide assistance any way I can. I’m currently running a page on Facebook called Colorado Flood Temporary Homes and I’m also selling these doo-dads on Etsy, benefiting flood relief.

    That is too close for comfort! Such a shame so many homeless. Will definitely pass the info along. Those are really cute!

    Ugh this is just devastating. We have a lot of people here who have family there. Some that even had to be airlifted out of their homes. It is amazing how much damage can happen so quickly. Glad you guys are safe from it.
