From forest fires to flashfloods never a dull moment

One minute the whole state is on fire and shortly after that we are hit with a seasonal monsoon pattern. Activity on the fire line changes to sandbagging and flashflood management. Never a dull moment in Colorado.
Next week I will be hosting a seminar in Manitou Springs with tips on how to fish a mudslide. This demonstration will include instructions on how to cast a boat anchor with your Tenkara rod and where to attach the beacon on your fly vest.
For some amazing pictures of flash flood aftermath in the Manitou Springs area, please review the Denver Post Article at the link below.

With all you guys in Colorado have been going through, it's good to see you still have a sense of humor.

Have you ever seen anything like the past two years or so?

@Mark: Colorado is a beautiful state but not without it's perils. This is one more reason why I love Colorado.

@Howard: I have seen harsh wildfire seasons and years where the monsoon pattern causes extreme flooding but that is rare. Having them both in the same year is new to me indeed.
