My thoughts and prayers are with many experiencing flash flooding in Colorado yesterday and today. Utah Valley last week. Various places in New England at various times in the past year. Nature is powerful.
As a scientist, I love this stuff! I love seeing the forces of nature at work. Maybe I should have been a geologist instead of a science teacher by training.
Exciting as it is to see geology in action, I know it's not fun and games for the people nearby. Hang tight! After the ordeals are over, you've got stories to tell the rest of your lives. And probably lessons for a life time to boot as communities reach out and help each other.
