I have only lived here 3 years, and I have never met a bunch of more flood-concerned people

I know 2 people who lost everything in that flood - it is a devastating experience and one that you never forget. In 1997,our basement floods within months of completing the project to finish it. It flooded because we had rain like no one had ever seen here. We bailed and did eveything possible and still lost a fair amount. I would probably have felt worse but compared to people in Ft Collins who lost their lives and the devastation on the Colorado State campus, we were lucky.
