The Big Thompson @ Drake is now higher than it was the night of the 1976 Flood. Old record was 9.3 feet, it's currently at 9.44 feet and rising.

We'll take more of THAT! Maybe not right away, hoping that's a sign of things to come this fall/winter!

Heard that I-25 is closed now between Hwy 7 (near Erie) through to Ft Collins. Some photos show stretches where it looks like a river.

The Big Thompson and Cache la Poudre rivers have both flooded I-25.

This makes me think that US-34 through the Big Thompson Canyon is gonna be out of commission for quite some time.

It's so weird to me that all of this is happening 20 minutes away from me, but where I live, the ground is dry and the sun is shining. Only in Colorado.

Feel so bad for all the people with damaged property.
