…it’s definitely time to move to Boulder:
To date, monthly rainfall for September in Boulder, Colorado, totaled 17.2 inches, the most for any month since official recordkeeping began in 1893, said Byron Louis, program manager for the National Weather Service in Colorado.
Rain in that area fell nearly continuously from September 9 to September 15, Louis said.
That amount of rainfall around Boulder is likely to occur less than once every 1,000 years, according to the weather service.
A 1000-year flood, huh? I’ve never seen flooding in the Boulder area, let alone to the degree that we saw last week. I guess now I know why.
