There’s a pair of boots on the ground in Boulder, Colorado, and from what I am hearing, things are getting back to normal – businesses open and such – pretty rapidly. The cleanup is ongoing, and will be for quite some time. If you are familiar with the actual topography of the area, then you know that Boulder isn’t a place where water settles. It runs downhill, so it makes sense that the 500 year floodwaters have already run down. Heaven help them if there comes another rain.

I hope to get more images from that scene as available, and at the same time I have noticed a lot of rain photos showing up from the Tip of Texas – the Lower Rio Grande Valley and South Padre Island – on some of my friend’s Facebook accounts from back home. Something about a hurricane?

I am looking for more images from both locations from anyone out there.
