    My office gal just emailed she's at work in Commerce City office so that is good news. Our Sedalia Construction office remained open.

    Dr. Ed,

    Not a clue, I'm at home, David is STILL trying to figure out how to get to CLs and pick up Tango, he left here at 5:00am and still no joy...if he manages to get Tango, he still has an hour+ drive to Orchard. No one there is answering text messages or phone calls (but cell service is limited, so...) My guess is David is going to have to scratch and try and figure out how to get home?

    Just curious, do they ever cancel a trial for extreme weather like this? Or is a scratch and partial refund the best one can hope for? I know expenses have already been incurred by the club. Can they postpone?

    Good news: pond is FULL (hope the dam holds)
    Bad news: drive way is washing away and I have huge ruts forming

    We need rain, but dang this is crazy...
    How close is the house? Any worries there?

    /Paul - we are safe from the flooding; the sump pump at the house in Fountain "should" be going crazy, but power was out last I heard and I need to get down to that house and verify our freezer with the elk meat is okay, too. Possible that the basement is flooded....our new house is okay, it sits on a hill, other than my drive being washed away (thank god for 4 wheel drive) we are safe...

    Edit: Just talked to David and he finally got Tango and is on his way to the trial...only 6 hours! I'm so glad I stayed home...

    We actually had company out on Monday, waiting for their estimate for the earth work...and it has rained everyday since then, too.
