What a disaster this is turning out to be. So much rain in such a short period of time. It really changed the landscape, neighborhoods, and roadways. It'll take years to recover. This will be a boon to construction folks but many businesses will likely go under.

Will insurance companies crank up premiums if residents rebuild in the newly known flood plains? Local governments will need to fix infrastructure so I'd guess taxes will sky rocket.

Boulder and Manitou Springs were hit hard this monsoon season, as well as many other towns.  Manitou Springs is nearby and there is nothing where paved roads used to be, and the numerous videos of cars being washed down the entrance and exit ramps off of hwy 24, looking like fishing bobbers in water, was just amazing.
It will take a while for all those towns to recover.
The flooding in Boulder was from too much rain, while the flooding in Manitou was from the Waldo Canyon burn scar. The water had nowhere else to go but down hill.
