"According to the National Weather Service, the Poudre reached 14.56 feet — nearly seven times its average during the previous four days — at 8:15 a.m. Friday. At that peak, more than 420,000 gallons of water passed a stream gauge every second."
I've already sent it in. I haven't heard back from the owner, but I got his email wrong the first time and it bounced. It didn't bounce the second time, but I wonder if it went to his spam folder. I know that Karen McWilliams received it, though, and she's going to add it to the public docs on the project. I don't know if the project is required to meet with the LPC, but they might do it as a "good neighbors" step.
I've taken a bunch of photos of houses with rounded doors. But I keep seeing even more. So I'm going to snap a few more shots, then post all of the cool doors. It's amazing how many times you can pass by a house and not really notice something until you know to look for it. Then it starts popping out at you from all over the place. I'm even seeing round-ish doors on many newer houses. It's definitely a "thing" but only the older houses have actual rounded doors - the rest are clever ways of adding roundness to doors while keeping them square. ... It'll all be in an upcoming post.
The thing is, our properties are already valued higher than the rest of town because we have limited edition homes. We want to preserve those. There's still plenty of other neighborhoods that have housing available. It's just that they're cookie cutter communities and people would rather be here. So they tear down our unique architecture and build cookie cutter style houses in their places. :-P
When I use the term "pass," that means that the house has a floor area ratio that is equivalent to, or less than, the largest possible floor area ratio given the zoning laws for that neighborhood. If a house has a floor area ratio that is more than that maximum, then it fails. There were a couple of houses that were within a couple of square feet of the maximum. I'm guessing that the city might let those slide, so I labeled them "margina" to point out that they weren't grossly over the maximum allowed.
