    Several Colorado communities entered red-flag, near-panic mode early Friday, as the National Guard began evacuating the entire town of Lyons, and high-mobility vehicles were sent to relocate nearly 2,000 people to safety.

    Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle told CNN that the “devastating storm” has dumped at least 6 inches of rainwater on the area in the last 19 hours, and forecasts for the near future weren’t much better.

    A 30-foot deep “surge of water, mud, rocks and debris” was making its way toward the boundary lines of the city, and area residents were ordered to seek out higher ground, one official said, in an NBC report. A witness reported the surge around the midnight hour, and told Boulder Office of Emergency Management that the water appeared to be sweeping up cars and carrying them along.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Someone should comb the DUmp. Find out if any of them are saying this is gods response to the recall election.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
