Please Help the Citizens of Northern Colorado
First of all, we hope all of our fellow Coloradans are OK! We are taking a break from wedding talk to show some flooding photos and ask you to donate to the Red Cross. It’s going to take a while for all of us here in Northern Colorado to dig out. We don’t even have a handle on how bad it is up here yet.
As I’ve said before photojournalism is an itch that I just have to scratch sometimes. When something like all this flooding happens I feel compelled to go out and cover it. After I was sure that my family and friends were safe, I bagged my cameras and walked a few blocks down to the St. Vrain River to see what was happening.
Its funny how earlier in the week all the rain was welcome and was conducive to a good night’s sleep. The last two nights it was quite the opposite. Now I wake up every few ours to check my basement and check the news for updates.
When I got down to the flood plain Thursday morning the water was visibly rising by the minute and people were trying to do whatever they could do stem the flow of water towards their homes. I picked up the camera and went to work. I still believe that it is important to inform the public during events such as this. What do you think?
Again, if you want to donate to the Red Cross here is the link. We hope all of our industry friends in Lyons, Estes Park and Boulder are as well as they can be at this point. And please everyone be safe!
