Severe weather in Colorado

There's been a lot of rain here in Colorado this week with major flooding down the canyons on the front range.  Fortunately I live in an area that is not near any if that!  But we could still have flooding from rain and creeks, although now that doesn't seem likely.

My day, however, is trapped in his trailer up Rist Canyon this morning with no power an a leak in the trailer. The canyon is impassable, and the rain keeps coming.

My sister was evacuated from the south side of Longmont yesterday and barely made it home before most of the streets were closed.

Today, both my daughters are trapped at home due to road closures-overnight 3 rivers flooded roads in their area. 

And here?  Well, my favorite bike path is flooded...

And the creek in our subdivision...

Never seen it like that!

But that's pretty much what we've got right now.

Remember it's just a ride.

Summer is over

Officially for me.  Tomorrow I actually start working at my new job, (cue jail cell door sounds).  No more biking like a madwoman, no more spending days watching entire seasons of Portlandia or United States of Tara.  It's sad.

Very sad.


Nope, tomorrow I have to wake up at 4:30.  4:30.  Ungodly hour.  And I hate mornings on principle.

Luckily, at least tomorrow I'll be shadowing the charge nurse, so that should be nice.  But, I shouldn't be bitching so much, in 2 weeks I'll be working nights, and that just plain sucks.  At 2 in the morning I can't even think straight!  Although, sleeping all day is kinda cool.....

Anyway, lets see how this new place is, hopefully nice and organized since I already know they are behind the times on charting and equipment.  I can't wait to paper chart again, (not).

Today I spent 2 hours on the computer doing mandatory Code of Conduct training.  Now I know what to do if someone at work violates the companies music copywrite code, or if their on the side catering biz bids on a company picnic.  Valuable things to know.  Guess I can't use the awesome training music on my blog. (damn)

In the meantime, I am going to enjoy the hell out of tonight by having Husband cook dinner, and I'll sit here and surf the web and drink New Belgium Pumpkick until I have to be carried to bed.


Remember, it's just a ride.  (so why am I working?)
