Tornados in the Poudre Canyon

Heard of confirmed reports (by the NWS) of two tornados in the Poudre Canyon today. One up near Grey Rock, and the other in Hewlitt's Gulch. This definately was a bizarre storm, never heard of tornadoes WEST of the foothills. WTF?

One of the highest altitude tornados ever recorded formed over Stormy Peak in RMNP and touched down on the Pingree Park campus. You can still find the blow-down evidence. So weird but not unprecedented

Damn we were supposed to raft today. Bridges would have been class V+ with a tornado!

I paddled Gulch down to BTO and put on about 5pm. I didn't see shit from a tornado. All we had was marble size hail to great us at the put-in. It looked like it had been there a while.

Good day on the river. Almost everything is wood free on that section.


PS. 3.75 on the gauge 5pm.
