uh, whatever else. Hopefully, hopefully he gets something out of this. And so the topic that that was on our plate that just kind of is, uh, even more illustrated. And as I happened to be driving a west here in our, our Water Damage Denver community and to look up at these snow capped mountains in, in the first week of June here. You know, I, I think a lot of people that don’t live in Colorado thinks that think that its nose, you know, 325 days a year and though it’s just a super cold climate and, uh, it’s, it’s where you come to ski, which is totally cool. I did not have a problem with people having that stigma on Denver. But we do like to operate off of facts here, bigfoot restoration repair. And so the reality is that Water Damage Denver actually has about 300 days of sunshine a year. Our climate is what most people would consider dry and not row humid. And the amount of days that we have rain or actual precipitation or snow are very, very few. So I’m down in the metro area, it’s just more often not just super pleasant and it’s, it’s incredible to uh, to call this place home. But I’m in the mountains, obviously you’ve got higher elevations, different weather patterns and I am looking at snow capped mountains and just beautiful, beautiful back country, um, that
clearly is still getting snow up there. So this time of year and as we get into July, we have something that we call runoff and it’s, it’s all the snow. It’s all the ice, everything that’s accumulated up in the high country as the, as the temperatures, you know, I mean relatively speaking, but they do get warmer up there, you know, into the summer and the ice, the snow starts to melt. Well, all of these things, uh, go into
it really becomes a resource and not only for our, for our state, but the, the water that is generated off the snow, the ice, the different dams that are set up kind of in our, our, uh, hills as we, as you get up into the West there, I mean, they literally serve most of the states here on the western part of the United States. Um, California as a huge recipient of, of our water here, Arizona. And so I’m not exactly sure where we’re all at reaches, but, um, we’ve got just probably about 70 and 70 years from miles west of Water Damage Denver. Got The continental divide. So continental divide is, it is a definitive line that shows which way the water runs off, depending on which side, the side of the line you’re on. It’s pretty interesting that everything east of that continental divide ends up in the Atlantic Ocean thousands and thousands of miles away. Crazy. Everything west of the continental divide obviously goes over to the Pacific. So, um, obviously it’s feeding into other streams, lakes, damns, creeks, whatever. But you’re talking about
gravity, you’re talking about just massive, massive, massive amounts of land that, you know, get pounded with snow and with rain, you know, most of the year because of their elevation, because of where, you know, kind of how everything just naturally is. And then as, as the wider warm weather warms up, where does this, where does this go? I mean, some of it evaporates, but a good amount of it, um, goes into a liquid state and it’s got to have somewhere to go. And over over time, you know, people are smart enough and have been over decades and centuries to use that runoff to their advantage. And so, um, obviously with respect to hydro generators and things like that, it’s used to create energy and it’s used to for fresh water. Um, like we talked about for a number of states and it’s used, um, and just multiple, multiple ways. And I’m not an expert by any means, but the fact of the matter is that it has to go somewhere. And in that scenario it’s being diverted to different areas to be a super duper resource for humans and for guess all living things.
but let’s just back up a second and say, well, what if that, what if it wasn’t diverted? What if it wasn’t going to dams and being used in a way to kind of being regulated to work in the best way that people see possible? Well, it’s got to go somewhere, right? So typically it follows gravity. And that’s one thing that we see constantly with water damage Denver situations is when water
comes from a broken pipe, when it comes from an overflowing toilet, when it comes from, you know, maybe a bathtub drain that’s, that’s failing, it’s gonna go somewhere and it’s going to find its easiest path
that it can.
So it’s gonna use gravity, it’s gonna use channels that maybe wouldn’t Water Damage Denver necessarily make sense to us, but just wherever it is easiest for that water to go. It’s gonna go. And if you, if you think back to your elementary days of, of science projects and things like that, when you’re, when you’re just doing super elementary type stuff,
um, you can’t
a volume volume, a certain amount of volume of liquid it maintains and there might be a slight evaporation and it can change states, you know, from liquid to gas to solid, uh, whatever. But you’re not going to pour a pitcher of water that’s full into another smaller picture and think that it’s not going to overflow. It will. What’s interesting is, you know, I can think back to a couple of science fair projects where Water Damage Denver I use different sponges and different things that would absorb. And that’s kind of interesting because you’ve got maybe a sponge that you know, four inches high by six inches wide and you know it’s a certain, it’s got its certain dimensions and you pour a certain amount of water into that sponge and it just kind of absorbs it up. And where did it go? Well it’s there. Okay, so let’s keep pouring more. Where did the water go? It’s there, it’s absorbed. Can’t really see it, but you know it’s there. Well at some point that sponge is going to re reach capacity. And what happens then? ,
