Is it as bad as 1973? It sure looks like it is worse, Used to live in Thornton back then and remember the flood very well.

you mean 1976, and judging from the pictures and videos I have seen (and I do remember it well) this one is way worse !

What is so sad about it is that whole canyon & mountain road is such a pretty area. I would like to fly out there in a few years and make 1 last trip on it.
