    Came in from Sunshine Canyon today. Long drive ,about 1 1/2 hrs.but manageable.60 miles one way.
    Good news, there were National Guard stationed along 36 ready to begin reconstruction on Monday. They’ve got their work cut out for them but seem enthusiastic.
    Hopefully road to Estes will be ready soon, with Lyons soon to follow.

    I live in Pinewood and drove out with the last convoy yesterday. My husband is still there because he’s retired. I had to get back to work. Did you register with FEMA? I did that today and so now I have a case number. That’s important – get the wheels in motion. A FEMA worker said that if you can’t get back to your home, you qualify so you should get some kind of reimbursement. They don’t pay for you to live elsewhere now but if you can get a check from FEMA you won’t be broke when this is all over. They also pay for lost wages. I went to the Disaster Relief site at Twin Peaks mall in Longmont. They also gave gift cards for gas and food plus food they had on site. Go to Salvation Army table and Boulder Housing table for gift cards. There is also a Disaster relief center in Boulder. I felt so much better after I left there. The volunteers were just wonderful.

    Good luck to you and God bless you!
