Rain, Rain, Please go away

OK, I know that I am not the only one in Colorado that feels this way. We had more than our share of rain in the last 4 days, with more to come this weekend. At first, it was a welcome sight, since we had experienced too many days at 90 degrees and above. But now it’s just too much! The TV news should stop putting up all the road closures and just let us know which ones are open. It would be a much shorter list. Hope you enjoy these images from the undigitized collection on the Denver Flood of the Platte River in 1965.
