Almost everything in the bible is exaggerated, including the floods. So when we have a flood that IS exaggerated (as a weather event) it is natural to call it biblical. The National Weather Service is calling this flood BIBLICAL (They always use all caps). Paul Douglas is calling it biblical (see below). I sent my friend the National Weather Service bulletin mentioning the biblical nature of the flood. She read my email on her cell phone while gazing at the wreckage of part of the back of her house down stream in a large river that was never there before and used to be the road, trapped at the base of a canyon, with her husband, a volunteer rescue worker, trapped somewhere over the mountain ridge. She said it was the first time she laughed since the biblical floods began.
Many weeks of rain fell in just a few hours on saturated ground. Expect more news from the vicinity of Boulder, along the east slope of the Rocky Mountains as various communities are rediscovered by civilization, or Doug, as needed, over the next few days.
Here's Paul's summary:
That is good, a weather man who understands climate science
As my wife would say 'white man sure is stupid! never listen to indian about anything.'
If they hadn't killed or run off the indians before building their cities they would have known this would happen. Just as the indians told (& were ignored) the white man about Seattle, Washington that it is on a tidal flood plain, but instead they have to rebuild everything at least once .
But then what do you expect from people who like building around volcanoes or below sea level.
Anybody know the origin of the city nam "Boulder"?
From Wiki: "The primary water flow through the city is Boulder Creek. The creek was named well ahead of the city's founding, for all of the large granite boulders that have cascaded into the creek over the eons. It is from Boulder Creek that Boulder city is believed to have taken its name."
