Wednesday afternoon during conversation with my wife who was in California on business: "It is raining hard and has been since you left yesterday. A tropical rain that we just don't see here. If this keeps up much longer, there are going to be problems."
Thursday morning after telling our 3-yr old boy that school is going to be closed: "I knew it. That's a lot of rain."
Thursday morning at Spruce in North Boulder: "We're closing at 8am. If you need coffee or food we'll set you up. Otherwise, we're going home."
Thursday evening: "Rob, I'm just going to stay at the airport tonight - I don't want to risk it."
Friday morning: "Just try going west on Erie Parkway and see if they forgot to close that one..."
Saturday morning: "You're lucky you stayed at the airport. I drove home that night and it was the scariest thing I have ever done. I watched one guy drive into an intersection and his car flip right over and get washed down the road. First responders had to pull him out." - Random guy at Spruce.
Sunday: "Is it really still raining?"
Monday: "Did it really just rain all night?"
