Colorado Flood

 There was a tremendous about of flooding last week in Colorado. It's so sad to see all of the destruction! My mom took some pictures of the flooding near my childhood home and it has broke my heart. The above photo... Our house sat on the hill towards the right, but the mass amount of water was the big horse pasture.
 The water flowing over the road is unbelievable! On either side of this road was a approx 5ft deep ditch. The water flowing is from the St.Verain River and as you go down the river a bit it meets with the Platte River. This photo was taken facing the North.
And the photo below is the same road now facing the South. I would say the flood waters from this one stretch of road would be close to 3 miles wide. 
Prayers are stretched out to all of the families who have been effected by the flooding. 
Cast thy burdens upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee... Psalms 55:22
