Last week we received 12 inches of rain in 3 days. Boulder Longmont and Loveland got hammered. The Sylvandale was devastated.
The first day after the flood I went out to the field but it was still too wet to launch.
Yesterday I got in a sunset flight with no drama and this morning, the same except for some bumps.
This was a good one. I launched at 6:00 and flew for an hour. There was plenty of gas so I followed the St Vrain River upstream to Lyons which has been evacuated due to contaminated water and flooded roads.
Calm clear morning. I flew up the south St Vrain Creek and saw the flood damage. The only notable moment was a long long taxi before the wing had inflated and stabilized overhead
