    Here's the situation. In Longmont, all bridges across the St Vrain river are closed. Some are destroyed. Yes - really. As it stands right now, there would be no way for me to get to Boulder tomorrow. A lot is going to have to change in the next 24 hours in order for sackygate to go on as planned. I apologize, but unless I say otherwise, the tailgate is cancelled.

    If things improve, I'll reassess and come back and let you guys know what the plan is. I didn't want folks to make plans when it looks very unlikely that I'll be able to get out of Longmont at any point in the next couple days.

    The reality of the current situation sucks.

    Here's hoping that the worst is behind us and things start to clear up.

    This does suck... scared it is going to adversely effect our boys if the game goes on. Lots of distractions.

    Thanks for the heads up, can't worry about what we can't control. Hopefully you can at least make it to the game

    7 News said the rain should slow up but could last until Tuesday.
    Previously, I heard it would clear up today.
    Who knows, it is Colorado.

    I can't make it out of Longmont, much less go to a football game in Boulder.

    Safety and common sense are secondary to football and tailgating. Sack up sacky!

    Good choice Sacky.

    Be safe, I was evacuated yesterday. The good news initial reports from my HOA is the water may have just made it up to my door step. Some areas in my neighborhood were up to waist high water.

    If he has the right cable and flat panel TV, you can run a cable from the computer to the TV. It works good.

    I would expect they will reopen passages (at least one) later today over the St. Vrain. Currently using at least one as "emergency vehicle only". Lots of friends there are under water in South and West Longmont. But it's starting to dry out and I've had sunshine here for an hour. Keep our fingers crossed.

    You should definitely log back in and enjoy. My memory tells me that ASU blanked the Nubs 19-0 in this game.

    I live at highway 119 and I-25 where all that flooding hit. Idaho Creek west of the trailer park by the fast food places.
