Life is better with Power!…..

View, from my deck, looking southeast. There is water where water should not be!

Sometime during the night, we lost power and it was restored about twenty minutes ago. Notice in the photo above, the leaning power poles. Crews probably can’t get in there, for repairs, until the water goes down. Those power lines must not have been what caused our outage.

I am most thankful for all power workers and for all the power plants across this country! I am deeply sorry for all fellow Coloradans still without power, for those who had to evacuate and for those who have been flooded.

Wishing everyone a happy weekend!

Dreary, rainy days,

softly as drops fall,

 perspective speaks.

Look inward, heart tells all, 

depending what you seek,

rainy days may be cheery.

It has been raining here in northern Colorado for the last four days. The rain, from my perspective, has been most welcome, because it has been dry for several weeks.

However, I have learned, as I am getting ready to post, that our heavy rains are causing flooding in parts of the Big Thompson Canyon and mandatory evaluations are being ordered. Flooding has also been reported in Loveland and in surrounding areas.

For friends that read by blog and camped this spring at Riverview Campground; it was evaluated this morning at 8:00am. This campground sits right next to the Big Thompson River.

Here is a link to the story written in the Reporter Herald, Loveland’s newspaper.

I guess I need to pay more attention to the news!
