Wordless Wednesday-Sandbagged

Hopefully there will be no more flooding in Manitou Springs this year, or the following years for that matter.  The creek is still running high and there are sandbags by many businesses and homes.

This little foot bridge crosses the currently very high running creek next to city hall.

Sandbags to protect property

This house was damaged in the first flood on July 1st and had a big dumpster outside for the debris.  The water from the second flood pushed the dumpster right over.
