Thank you all for your support! We cannot thank you enough for your generosity. Sarah and I are staying in a temp apartment in Boulder until the 19th of Nov. and will be searching for longer term housing depending on the progress being made to the roads.
Repairs to Highway 36 to Estes Park are moving right along - ahead of schedule from what we are being told. Longmont dam rd. is still waiting for work crews to begin on that section. Unfortuantly we have not been able to get FEMA inspectors to look at our place because the area is still inaccessible without hiking.
I did attend a meeting in Longmont that was concerning N. St. Vrain and the re-channelization of the river to the previous location. This is still being worked out but it did sound promising that they would attempt to put the river back in most areas making it possible to reclaim and backfill lost land. Also the City of Longmont considers LDR a top priority becuase they need to move heavy equipment into the area to fix the water lines from button rock to Longmont. Currently Longmont is drawing water from Carter Lake which is putting extra stress on that system.
It has been one day at a time but we do have faith that we will return to the house and get our essentials all fixed and functioning correctly. The well and bridge being our top concerns right now. I have been hiking in on the weekend to attempt to control our erosion issues. This weekend I will be clearing the mud slide off the septic tank and leech field area "“ we are hoping this system does not need repair.
I have added more photos to a new album that should be accessible to anyone who would like to view them:
Thank you all very much!
We Love you all!
Aaron and Sarah
