The Monday I arrived, it rained a bit.
Tuesday, there was some drizzling. Walked across Boulder Creek and around the campus.

Wednesday night the crashing of the rain on the roof and the sirens kept us awake. I worried about getting to the airport on Thursday.
Thursday we left Boulder in a downpour. There was water on the roads. The 40 minute drive to the airport took an hour and a half.
Then the water came down from the hills.
According to NCAR, 14.7 inches of rain fell - an entire year's worth in 2 days.
