One area which is near and dear to most Coloradans hearts are our four legged pals and pets. Since the first reports of evacuations, the Longmont Humane Society, which is one of the Front Range's largest facilities, has taken in over 230 animals which were stranded or otherwise displaced by the rushing waters.

The majority of the animals that are being sheltered at the Longmont Humane Society because of the floods are in a unique

Economics seem to rule the roost these days. As such, there always appears to be some degree of drama attached to them. Economics are the core issue when it comes to mortgage interest rates fluctuating up and down, the stock market typifying a roller coaster or the government shutting down because the political parties can’t agree on what to do.

Buying and selling real estate is an economic decision. If a seller decides to sell their home, what is the economic impact to them? What are the economic options left if they do sell?

Working in the Real Estate industry we need to categorize our listings as either in the flood zone, minimal risk, high risk, etc. When check-marking the appropriate box I never imagined that I would see what the high risk flood could really encompass.


September is always an amazing time for me. The weather is generally amazing as is the excitement in the air for all the holidays to come. Especially September 12th, my birthday - I love my birthday.
