Kay Cook and Doug Burger relate their experiences during the 2013 Boulder flood. Kay and Doug were living in the small mountain community of Salina, Colorado, at the time. They describe the way their experience of the flood unfolded as cars, houses and all their possessions washed away. They describe the way they had to evacuate multiple times to move to safer ground, including a challenging rescue by zip line across the raging creek waters. They discuss the losses they faced, the beauty and power of the flood, and the power of community support, which they felt throughout from both strangers and friends.
