An historical archive of the year of the great flood.


. . . so advises Nolan Doesken, the state climatologist at Colorado State University, in an article in Boulder Magazine entitled “Unique, but not the BIG ONE.” That surprising statement is based on the average rainfall over the front range being roughly a 25-year event. “Boulder however, indeed can carry the label 1,000 year rainfall”  with 18+ inches. The article features photos from Jamestown and is a wakeup call for preparedness. You can download the magazine in the pdf version and read the article on page 42, read the online version, or pick up a free hard copy at various locations in Boulder.
