If you haven't been reading about Colorado weather lately, we're in the middle of a 100/500/1000 year flood event along the front range. Parts of the front range (Boulder,Estes Park, aurora, and others) have received up to 15 inches of rain in the last five days (or just about the normal annual amount). Lots of mountain communities are 100% cut off, with miles and miles of roads washed out and lots of bridges washed away. Rain and flash floods from the mountains have filled the major rivers (st vrain, south platte and others), causing even more flooding and damage along their banks out on the plains. There's more rain in the forecast for the next day or two, so we aren't out of the woods yet.
Thankfully, fatalities have been low (compared to the Big Thompson flood in 1976 that killed over 150 people).
Oh, and my thread title? Most of the fun roads up to the mountains are going to be closed for a while until this gets cleaned up. In my neighborhood (most of western Denver and southern Denver), we had a lot of rain, but no flooding (yet).
The damage here in Aurora hasn't been too bad compared to other places, but I agree, most of the fun mountain roads are pretty badly damaged, with whole stretches washed out. Riding the curvies here could be over until next spring at the earliest.
