LYONS, Colo. (AP) — The storms that raged through the Rocky Mountain foothills instantly remade the landscape. They may have also changed the face of the funky mountain hamlets that dot the Front Range.
The disaster hit rich and poor alike, but some residents will be able to afford to wait and rebuild, while others will not.
In Lyons, 20 minutes north of Boulder, two low-lying mobile home parks bore the brunt of the damage. Residents say they will not be able to return because the mobile home parks were the last of the affordable housing, and are unlikely to be rebuilt.
Rich and poor alike say the flood has accelerated a process that was already underway in the region, which has recently become a haven for crunchy, young, upwardly-mobile families.
