It's been three years since Boulder and much of Colorado suffered from what meteorologists call a thousand-year flood. While most have recovered, many never returned to their homes. It was a great chance to see Colorado pull together to help each other. 

Here are some before and after of photos from our neighborhood in north Boulder. Click here to see a video of scenes from the flood.

An astounding 17.15 inches of rain - the equivalent of almost one year's worth of rain - fell on Boulder over an eight-day period in September.  It was an intense, emotional and historical eight days.  What we remember most from this unforgiving wrath Mother Nature played on us was the outpouring of support shown to one another by the people and

STEM added Art and is picking up STEAM. All around Colorado Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math/Music have become the focus of extracurricular activities for kids of all ages.

Use die-cutters to construct paperboard boxes or a cut-out a horse that stands on its own.

1. Living In The Shadow Of The Flatirons

Living with a breathtaking view of the Flatirons is so, ugh. Imagine you’re on vacation and you’re comparing views and you’re thinking “Meh, I’ve seen better.” That’s no way to live! If you hate living in a postcard, you’ll hate Boulder, CO.

2. Bicycles Everywhere

If you’ve ever driven around Boulder you know what I mean. Cyclists rule the road. They are everywhere: kids, men in suits, athletes, and cruiser riders in costumes. There are mountain bikes, road bikes, recumbent bikes, elliptical bikes,

Recently the Boulder Daily Camera published an article entitled, "Price of Average House Tops $1M." With home values soaring, it's easy to read the headline and jump to some not so accurate conclusions.

For Real Estate take the total of all homes sold in a month and divide by the total homes sold. This number is greatly affected month-to-month by the number of sales and by the sale of high-end listings. In a market such as Boulder County where only 521 homes sold in June 2016, numbers are even more easily skewed by these luxury home sales.

Mid-Level Housing

"Average" is not mid-level housing. Generally, mid-level housing in Boulder refers to homes between 1000-2999 square feet. That's not to say there aren't luxury
