When it rains....

So, I have been complaining about the heat, and the dry. Complain complain. And then, it rained. It rained a lot. It started raining, and it didn't stop. It is still raining. In fact, it has rained so much that Fort Collins is pretty much shut down today, since there are floods everywhere (the city is actually officially "closed," with most of the roads blocked by flood waters or potential flood waters). A few neighbourhoods have evacuation orders. Other parts of Northern Colorado (but actually very close by) are doing far worse however, with record breaking rainfall causing lots of damage, and sadly even a few deaths. Search and rescue efforts are underway and widespread evacuations continue.
Anyway, it is all very dramatic, but we are doing just fine here, staying close to home for the most part. I taught my Friday the 13th flow yoga class to.... myself this morning. No great surprise there. And we've been enjoying a few breaks in the rain to get outside and see just how much water has accumulated in the wheelbarrow.
