LONGMONT - A family who lost almost everything in the flood took video of the ordeal.
As the water kept rising, they kept rolling.
Water levels have fallen at Lefthand Creek, but they are still well above normal.
Early Thursday morning, the normally calm creek was rapidly rising.
Water was covering South Bowen, forcing Longmont police to close the bridge.
As the creek kept rising, landlocked lawns became waterfront property.
"What are we going to do? What are we going to do if it breaches," asked Lynn Garrison, as her camera captured those anxious hours.
Her son Riley, daughter-in-law Janae Dudley, and their three children were evacuated from the Royal mobile home park, which sits along the St. Vrain River.
"It looks pretty bad. It's really pretty bad," Dudley said. "Off to the left side of our trailer is all gone."
The experience would be traumatic for anyone, but it was especially hard on Dudley.
"I'm about to give birth in a day. My due date is actually tomorrow," she said.
She's expecting a baby boy, with an unbelievably fitting name.
"My son's name is River Donavan Garrison," she said.
They chose the name River a year ago, never imagining the chaos the river would cause.
"It's a little bizarre. The fact that my son's name is going to be after a catastrophe that literally took our home away from us," Dudley said. "I think he's going to be ornery. I think he's going to be a catastrophe himself."
As the governor's helicopter left Longmont Monday evening after touring the flood zone, this family who lost so much realized what they still have.
"We're so thankful, honestly. We're so thankful nobody was hurt. Anything that's material can be replaced," Garrison said.
Longmont city crews worked to fix flood damage Tuesday, while some areas remained closed including the Royal mobile home park.
Like many of their neighbors, the Garrison family had no insurance.
They lost their home, their possessions, but at least they'll be together when baby River arrives.
