Currently, our home state of Colorado is experiencing heavy rains which is causing flooding, road closures, school closures, loss of power or water, and mandatory evacuations. Many of our friends and family live in the areas impacted by the abnormal precipitation. We feel helpless, yet so invested in the well-being of our friends, family, and local community. We are constantly drawn to the local news sources, social media, and electronic communications to receive updates on conditions.
Thanks to social media and an internet connection, we do not feel completely isolated from the events. However, at times the constant access to and influx of information can make you feel even more helpless and out of touch.
We know Colorado as a state of endless blue skies and lots of sunshine. It’s unimaginable to think of days and days of rain resulting in the massive flooding. Photos on facebook and videos from online news sites just don’t seem real.
We continue to think of our friends, family and local community…and pray for the best!
