When it rains in Colorado it Rains!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

The most rain reported in the past 24 hours – 2.64 inches – was reported in southeast Aurora near South Chambers Road and East Yale Avenue, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday's storms caused some street flooding, prompting some road closures. Aurora had lots of accidents and I was at Sam's Club just as the hard rain started but made it home safe.  We are in for rain again today this morning to 3 pm today.

 

The grass and flowers are happy for it.

We here in NW AZ, Mohave County have experienced a monsoon lasting several days. Yes the water is a welcome relief except for all the damage to dirt roads and some homes.

That's a lot of rain all at once, Will. We had quite a storm here last night as well, but fortunately I was a home by then.

Take care if you will be driving in the rain and never try to drive through flooded streets.

It seems there are seldom any happy mediums any more.  Glad you are safe.  That type of rain fall definitely not what one should be out in.  M

Hello Mark you are so right.  The Big Thompson area had some heavy damage to the road again.  4 times since 1976

You're lucky you had some rain, despite the issues, Will.

We certainly could use some here in CA!
