The North American Monsoon left many soaking wet today. I rode my bike home by the station reading 1.57 inches at Little Dry Creek. What a soaking. Clear Creek was up significantly.

More coverage from the Associated Press via The Washington Post. From the article:

A fast moving storm has dumped heavy rain in the Denver area, causing minor street flooding and trapping some people in their cars in high water.
