It's close, though. I think the picture shows a date and time, doesn't it? There are a few different sites that offer this service, so you might find a very recent shot. (Unless the Chamber of Commerce is nixing the pics!)

Here's another source for pictures:

I'll bet everything will be fine by the time you get there. Barring any more rain deluges. Most towns in Colorado are well-equipped with snowplows, to keep the roads open.

Wow, those photos are something else, much more than we saw on the news. I hope clean up is going well and that you all are recovering. We are still coming unless another monsoon starts up.

Hi again,
I was looking at Manitou visitors info and saw a weather bulletin that said thunderstorms were expected. Hope things are OK and that the flooding doesn't start up again.


Just about two weeks until our trip...

jayne, there was a weather warning for that area again last night or the night before. It's really a shame, because we need the rain, but not in downpours over a burn area.

I know-- scary. What a strange year this has been! I will be keeping up with Manitou weather on a regular basis for the next couple of weeks!
