Thank you for sharing.  I will post more later as more information comes.  I am in a safe dry area.  I am fortunate.

Wild and crazy week for us. My daughter lives in Longmont and works in Lyons and Boulder. It took her four hours to get home on Thursday, and she had to work from home on Friday. She works in Boulder five days a week. Her other employer,  the Black Bear five-star restaurant in Lyons, (three days a week--yep, on Fridays she works both jobs), has a couple feet of water. The owners and their daughter were evacuated, but the daughter is staying with friends and volunteering--distributing all the food from the restaurant freezers and supply closets. My daughter is hoping to go to work tomorrow (in Boulder), but it's been pouring rain all day, so the rivers and creeks are even higher.

THEN, if all that wasn't bad enough, she was driving to the grocery store, and a nervous, distraught teenage driver T-boned her car! Totalled it. She had two of her grandkids in the car with her. Of course all were buckled up (she's fanatical about seatbelts.) Nobody was hurt.

And they tell us things will get worse.

Sometimes I marvel at how strong and resilient she is. She says she got it from me, but she must have taken it all, 'cause I don't think I have any left! I guess she won't be worrying about her second job for a long time.

Montanabarb, wow that does sound hard to deal with... did you mean the teenaged girl driver wrecked your daughter's car? I'm glad if no one was hurt...
Give us another update soon. I hope this flooding stops soon...

Sorry about that--I'm around kids too much.  They call it T-boning when a car is hit broadside. Yes, my daughters car was totaled. I don't have any updates this morning, as to whether she got to work, or whether her business is even operating.  Sooo many roads are closed it will take her awhile, if she can get there at all.

Montanabarb - that's fine I figured "t boning" was definitely not a good thing...
I pick up on a lot of lingo but just wasn't familiar with that one...
So sorry to hear that all happened.. Thankfully your daughter and grandkids are fine...
Sounds like a really difficult situation for her to get to work though...
Weather is drying out in Colorado, last I checked...

Flooding in south Florida, the worst for a hundred years. At least two people drowned and over 17 inches of rain in one place...
Also there was a record broken...Palm Beach County...

NWS: Palm Beach County sees record flooding
 
County public schools closed; Flooding closes parts of I-95

Author: Liane Morejon, Reporter, lmorejon@wplg.com
Ben Candea, Senior Web Producer, bcandea@local10.com

JUPITER, Fla. - 
Flood waters in Delray Beach are receding after this week's historic rainfall. Police are still monitoring some side roads that have residual flooding.

A late afternoon rainstorm left widespread flooding from Delray Beach to Fort Pierce Thursday.

The National Weather Service says the Boynton Beach area received 17.72 inches of rain.
"My car went in the water and then stuck," said Bernadette Pierre. "I'm soaked, wet, and my car stuck over there for the last three hours."

A woman drowned in Delray Beach when she drove off a roadway into a canal. A second person drowned at Kings Point. That victim was identified as 90-year-old Harry Krulewitz.

Other areas up and down the coast also experienced flooding.

Flooded streets were impossible to navigate and, in some cases, drivers simply abandoned their cars. Creative people paddled boats in roads that had turned to rivers and most major ramps off I-95 had to be completely closed due to standing water. More than 100 stranded vehicles had to be towed.

"The water is so deep at the entrance and at the circle even if you get through the parking lot you can't get out to the main roads," said Andrew Loy

At The Meadows apartment complex there was so much standing water in the parking lot, residents were forced to stay home.

"I have water in my car right under the steering wheel where you put your feet," said Yuliisha Ganister. "It is a real mess."

The flooding was so bad in a neighborhood near Gateway Boulevard, water came pouring into homes. Residents did the best they could getting their belongings up and off the ground and then dealt with the clean-up.

The Boynton Police Department received hundreds of service calls and extra officers were brought in overnight.

Police rescued a blind homeless woman in a wheelchair, but the water came up so fast when they found her, it was up to her chest.

"They called out to her. She said she had been out there for hours," said Stephanie Slater of the Boynton Police Department. "They assured her they would bring her to safety. They pushed through the heavy brush and lifted her out of he wheelchair and carried her to safety."

"I've lived in Boynton since 1969 and this is the worst flooding I have seen in this area," said Boynton Beach Vice Mayor Woodrow Hay.

Schools were closed in St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties due to the flooding. Officials say up to nine inches of rain fell in Fort Pierce.

Martin County Fire Rescue officials say a possible tornado in Hobe Sound damaged 30 homes. No injuries were reported, but officials say there were multiple downed power lines.

Yowbarb Note
It may not be so obvious by this NWS map but there are a whole lot of flood watches and warnings and flash flood warnings going on right now. One area where it could get really bad is right on the Great Lakes when things thaw on Wednesday. Take Care, everyone.
