Sharon Cole, who lost one home to the Fourmile Fire in 2010 and then experienced major damage to another house in Fourmile Canyon in which she lived at the time of the Flood of 2013, gives an eyewitness account of the flood’s effect on houses, roads, bridges, and creek beds during those September days in 2013. She tells of moving within the canyon for safety, of eventual evacuations and returning to survey damages and rebuild, and of the large role played by friends and even neighbors who previously did not know each other but were drawn together as a community by disaster.
