Ironically, today’s post was going to be a survey from the Sunshine Award. However, that’s going to have to get postponed to next week. The sun has been hiding here in Colorado, and all it’s been is rain, rain, rain.
So…that rain here in Boulder County has turned from rain…to an absolute nightmare. I’m so sad to see the damage this flood has done to my county.
Watching the pictures come in yesterday, and being directed to several different ways to come home yesterday, seeing so many be forced to go into shelters, and three people dying, I hated seeing people taking this lightly on social media yesterday. CU cancelled classes until Monday, and the Boulder Sheriff told everyone to stay off the roads, as the roads were for emergency personnel only.
This is the “creek” that runs behind our neighborhood.
Notsomuch a creek anymore!
Luckily, I got home from the gym I have to drive to by early morning, and then rest of my clients were at the gym within walking distance. I trained, albeit a bit wet from rain, until noon, and then called it a day. I scrubbed the bathrooms, sent some emails, and then started watching Newsroom on Netflix around 3:00. Yep…I was a lazy bum from 3:00-about bedtime, save for the hour when we cooked dinner.
Chicken sausage and green beans. I was actually going to put in some effort into making spaghetti or maybe even chicken enchiladas, but it turns out I forgot to thaw out both of those things. Soooo, chicken sausage it is. We also busted out a bottle of wine, because the wine shop across the street was open, and what else is there to do when the town is shut down because of a flood?
Oh, and earlier on in the day, I said to a client, “can you imagine if this rain was snow?!” Well, turns out, if it were snow, we would have gotten 125 inches of it!! And that was reported around noon yesterday! Crazy…
Today I’ve got a really busy day! It starts with early morning clients and ends with a couple business meetings
Oh, and we’re not going camping this weekend anymore, clearly. And I’m not about to complain about not being able to camp when there are people evacuated from their homes!
And just so this post ends on a happy note, look at the flowers I was surprised with from a client this week:
I mentioned my favorite flowers were hydrangeas, and this pretty little arrangement showed up at the gym! It made my day.
Have you ever experienced a natural disaster?
I’ve never experienced one of this caliber before in person…only on the news!
