Obviously this is God's way of punishing Colorado for legalizing pot.

When you have always substitute words with pictures you have lost the debate.

I agree. It's one stupid f**king way to "debate," and it's ugly to boot.

and IMO a waste of screen space. I hate filing through them.

I have answered them back in like manner, because I am not sure they can read. (kidding).

Colorado flood: Some stranded Aurora residents retrieved by rafts

AURORA — Heavy rains have snarled traffic, flooded streets and parks and swamped an apartment complex, requiring a water rescue Thursday.

As the evening commute began Aurora authorities were warning motorists to stay away from S. Peoria St. near East Jewel Avenue, as the road is collapsing.

Parts of Aurora received 0.4 inches of rain in a 15-minute period Thursday morning. Up to 2.72 inches fell over the city in a 6-hour period, the National Weather Service reported about 2 p.m.

Rain throughout the night and morning, caused mudslides and rock slides around the metro area.

Aurora police and fire authorities warned residents to stay put.

Shortly after 2 p.m., water as deep as 5 feet swamped an areasurrounding an apartment complex at 9906 Arizona Avenue, near the intersection of East Mississippi Avenue and S. Peoria Street.
Rescue crews used inflatable rafts to bring stranded people to safety, said Lori MacKenzie, a city spokeswoman.

As floodwaters subsided during a break in the rains Thursday afternoon, some residents were out trying to make sense of the flooding.

Neighbors helped neighbors. Strangers helped strangers.

Moustafa Pooyanfar was getting an oil change on east Mississippi Avenue when he spotted an Aurora police cruiser and a taxi stuck in the water.

"We pushed them into the parking lot, where there was no water. We were glad to help."

A short time later, a tow truck came and hauled the police car away.

Joel Davis, 50, was visiting a friend on the 900 block of Quari Court when water knocked over a fence in the front yard while two feet of water flooded the back yard Dorothy Johnson. Davis didn't know her, but jumped in to help.

He tore down two fences to let the water drain and Thursday afternoon he was shoveling water to drain into the street.

"The backyard was completely flooded," Davis said. "There was no place for the water to go."

Johnson said she appreciated the help. "He was nice enough to help us out," she said.

It sucks that it's the only thing you understand! (pictures)
