this couple only had enough time to grab their shoes and run as the wall of water and debris flowed through the town. i think more rain is coming today too.

Such georgeous idealic homes on what was a creek , turned into raging river .
I live on a small creek that will turn into a raging river during heavy down pours , but we dont have the steep slopes that these canyon town must have .
We did have a log jam break one year and cause havoc , but nothing like this video .
I hope they are insured

"Great video"? That is what you think is "great"?

Sad, terrible, destructive, devastating, heart-breaking, but I don't know of anyone who would call it "great".

Hey, I don't think OP meant anything by "great". Sometimes it takes a "good" video for people to really realize exactly what is going on and how bad it is. The video makes it more realistic and helps people relate, instead of saying "hey, there's a flood".

Yeah, he could've used words such as "horrific" or "devastating" video, but I'm sure he didn't mean harm by his words. I don't think he deserved to be attacked.

OP: I appreciate the video link I have not seen before.

I don't think he meant it like that. Take one of a few definitions of 'great' for example: of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average.
"the article was of great interest".

Back on topic.... My prayers go out to those people. Colorado is so beautiful; it's too bad these people are going through that.

Adjective:
Of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average.

The word great is an adjective to video.

Chill out.

Did anyone else find it strange how non nonchalant the two in the video were?
Maybe it had to do with the Coors light they were sipping on.

I found that strange too, but some people see their glass half full, instead of empty. Maybe they see themselves fortunate that they are still alive. Things and homes can be replaced, but lives cannot.

Here is an article from my local news source about the flooding in Colorado. I was going to post a few days ago but was too lazy.



Boulder, CO (WSYR-TV) - A state of emergency has been declared in Colorado as more than 2.5 million people are being impacted by a massive flood on Thursday. One estimate suggests that the rain fall for the day is equal to a year’s worth. There have been reports of a 20 foot wall of water and some weather experts are calling the deluge "biblical."

wow. didn't think the word "great" would cause such a stir. "great" doesn't always mean HAPPY. sheesh. i thought the video was great because it was interesting and shocking. also from an artist standpoint i thought it was well shot.

also, i'm a she not a he.... not that it matters.

as for them being nonchalant they might be exhausted and still in a bit of shock.

i feel bad for their community.

Wow, my Mom once worked at the Scientology camp there, she got fired...

Ok now off to read and view the rest of the OP.

Where are all of members from that area? We used to have several really GREAT ones that sprang to mind after watching the video. If this can happen way up in elevation like Colorado, think about the midwestern Mississippi flood planes when that blows as has been predicted and I personally believe will happen in my lifetime.

Imagine if this was later into winter? What the snowfall amounts would be? I think this winter we are in for HELL all over the US

That was kinda strange, now that you mention it. "They climbed up and finally met the neighbors?"
But ya, they could've just still been in shock.

I'll tell you something that has been eating away at my daughter and I for a few days.... A WEEK BEFORE any of this, she for the first time ever since living in Denver, she heard the sirens going off at night for absolutely no reason.. She looked for clouds and tornadoes etc., nothing. Never had they just "tested the sirens" at night. But she called me and said there were sirens and asked why they would be sounding the sirens at night. Never heard them in the day either. Then, in the past few days, they have been sounding them at night of course, as a flood warning we assume (she lives by the Platte River).

Maybe "they Knew" something may be coming, but I don't know. But the whole thing about the sirens is just strange.

i don't find their reactions to be odd. they probably aren't used to being filmed for one and two.... they are likely still in shock and exhausted. combine all those factors and they seem pretty normal to me.

To be honest i can think of only a handful of really good reasons to start drinking Coors Light early in the day (or even at all, i like me some dark beers) and losing your home and everything you have worked for to a massive flood is right there on the list. There also might have been ##snipped## involved in their attitude, but again, i cannot fault them for that. It's legal in Colorado after all.

After watching my entire town be destroyed i'd probably be sitting up on a hill drinking and smoking the day away myself. They have the rest of their lives to worry and work, glad they got to live a little longer and embrace the simplest pleasures in life while their world crashed down around them.

My sons are living out there. They are okay and knowing them, they'll get out there and try to help. I do worry, though. Been watching on the news and its hard to imagine because I've never been in anything like it. I wouldn't even have anything to compare it to.

and can you imagine the panic when you realize cars and telephone poles are coming down the mountain in a rushing river?

the devastation in parts of colorado is almost like a hurricane hit.
