Default Grand Lake Blizzard 2011

its a sad site to see all the destruction up at Grand Lake, news said approx 40 million in damages, I think a lot more than that!

I hope nobody here on OSO has any of these boats that are submerged or have a roof sitting on top of them

As far as I know all of our boats are fine. The pictures are a sad sight to see though. It's not gonna get any better with the 5" to 10" of snow that we will get tonight. I hope they've been busy shoveling up there.

Hate to see this stuff. I've gone thru exact same conditions twice now. I have pics that look just like yours. Actually ran down to check on my boat this past weekend because of the ice storms last week. Wonder if the marinas could use a heat tape of sort on the top to melt the ice and snow, because of the shallow pitched roofs. Would have saved our docks.

We saw few this weekind too. Dripping lost one whole dock. Windmill was sinking. It is VERY depressing looking at them all!
My dock was good still had a foot or more before water was over boards. Cleared snow this weekind tho so no worries while we in Vail. But gotta drive thru it in the morning.
I did call and raise my Ins value of the dock !!

Looks like the lake got 12+ inches again today. I hope they got all of the last snow cleared from last weeks storm before this one hit
