The tiny town of Jamestown, northwest of Boulder has been hit especially hard by Thursday's flooding.  Martha Russo lives about five miles from the center of town, which also means her house is about 1500 feet higher than the flooded areas.  She lost power early Thursday morning and spent the day trying to catch up with friends in lower-lying parts of town.  She spoke with CPR's Anna Hanel about what she's seeing and hearing.
