This picture was taken just uphill to the northwest of our place - this is supposed to be a path with the creek passing through a small culvert that runs under the path from the cement wall on the left to the tree on the right.
Downhill from the picture above, this is the path as it passes past our place, about 20 feet from the corner of the house. Yes - the path, not Sunshine Creek - if you expand the picture, you can see the creek on the other side of the trees that separate the path from the stream.
A bit further down hill, the path opens up to the driveway and parking outside of our garage. The water passed by the corner of the garage [about where this picture was taken], and we kept it out of the garage with several home made sand bags.
A video of the path.
Just a bit of the debris that flowed with Sunshine Creek - and some of it was much larger than this stuff!!
Just across Spruce Street from our place are two city tennis courts that sit in a bit of a bowl next to the creek - yes, that is the very top of one of the nets in the middle of the water.
The worst seems to be over for Boulder, and thus the clean up will soon begin. However, all of this water is going east, so many down stream places are now flooding including as far east as Kansas. It will be interesting to see if the weather folks officially declare this to be a 100 Year Flood.
