What a summer this has been. Colorado has been ravished by forest fires followed by flooding. We are most recently reeling from the shootings at the movie theater in Aurora. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those families. It is such a tragedy on so many levels.
From the outside I would imagine that things look pretty bleak.For most of us, however, it is mostly a summer with extreme weather. We've bounced between monsoon like rain to a record breaking string of days that approach or exceed the 100 degree mark. Usually it is a more manageable 85 degrees.
