Other things to note
Post Fire and Flood Update - Although the June 2012 fire came close you can hardly tell it was ever there. A month after the fire in July 2012 there was a huge thunder storm that dumped over an inch of rain in less than an hour over the burn area a mile from our house. This massive amount of water over the burn area was more than the area could absorb after the burn and since our home sits where Sand Creek (a normally dry creek) joins the year round Fountain Creek our home was hit by a wall of water about 2 feet high. After this we put up a trapbag wall to protect the house and we have had many rainstorms that have dropped as much as a couple inches of rain in a day and there has been no flooding again until July 2014 when we were again hit by a wall of water about 1.5 feet high. However, the trap bags did their work and there was no damage whatsoever to the house. However if another huge rainstorm comes over the burn area another flood is expected until the burn area vegetation has completely regrown, a process that takes many years.
The Colorado Flash Flood “Season” officially runs from April 1 to September 30th but these floods can happen at any time. We have been advised that the peak months for possible flash floods are July and August. To help protect against this we have put into place a barrier to help divert water around the home which will help reduce a little bit the threat in the future. We have also installed NOAA emergency weather alert radios in each Area to warn you if there is a large rainstorm that could cause a flash flood.
