Colorado Flood - Stress Relief
 
So we were ordered to evacuate from our flooded homes for 4 days. After the first 14 days of working to get our houses back in order after the Colorado flood, my neighbor and I organized a Bronco watching party in my yard. This was my time to work on something other than pumping sewage, power washing, or demoing my basement. So here are the details.

We setup a TV and antenna and pointed it towards Denver.

We located 3 easy up awnings which were not destroyed by the flood and got them setup over the TV and food serving area.

I loaded up the Cado with ABTS:

The brownie was setup with the ROT and 2 chickens:

The Red MT was loaded with moink balls:

We also cooked 30 brats and 30 burgers on the Cue Cart.

The SS performer served as a charcoal starter and a prep table.

So here's the whole crew watching the Broncos whip up on Phili.

My weber's performed like champs.

Here's what the neighborhood looked like 2 weeks earlier.

The water was up the mailbox when my wife and daughter were rescued by the fire truck. Basement had 7 ft of water in it after the basement windows shattered under the pressure.

When things like this happens...it really makes you appreciate the little things in live.

Glad to see you have maintained a positive attitude.

Nice party!

wow, sorry to see that destruction. Glad you are in good spirits and back to BBQing.

The flooding must have been terrible. I'm happy to see you got some much needed R&R afterwards. The birds on the spit resonate with me because I plan to do a couple on my UDR (Ugly Drum Rotisserie) for dinner today.
