The Valverde area south of I-25 & Alameda was wiped out. After the flood, the hotel/bar built near that intersection was called the Valverde Yacht Club, haha. Was torn down a couple of years ago. -Tom (The Denver Eye)

Nice one Greg. The restrained vocals work quite nicely here, though I think it's the opening "trickling water" effects that really do it for me.

Listener Greg G.

Thanks, Dan. And you're right about the water effects being a nice touch. Also, blended in with the watery sounds, the rolling drumbeat is surely meant to evoke the sound of thunder.

Thanks, Greg! I was 9 years old that summer.

Water damage

Unreal - $500 million? I love fishing the South Platte River for rainbows and browns. It's one of the finest, if not the premier fishery in Colorado.

I was 11 when it happened, living just east of Littleton. The river had been bank-full for three weeks from snowmelt when the 14" of rain hit down south of Castle Rock and Plum Creek exploded. And indeed, I remember Tony Lamonica goving a play by play as the Hampden Avenue bridge collapsed on 950 KIMN.
