That was a great rain Saturday evening, and nice to have. Luckily there was not much hail or a tornado with it. We lucked out. I hear over TV that the roofers swarmed into Windsor and Erie on Sunday morning, all trying to get the most jobs. By the signs around town, about two-dozen roofing companies swarmed into Lyons last month, each telling you “they are the best.” How do we know! According to the TV, you should get three bids for replacing your roof, do not pay ahead, and make sure you get a good job.

The town was full of festival-goers over last week through the weekend bringing good music to folks from near and far, and boosting the town’s economy. Besides the lessons, they enjoyed tubing, swimming, playing, jumping, dancing, eating, etc. The downtown area was congested all weekend with hardly a place to park. All enjoyed their stay in Lyons. FolksFest is August 16 through 18.

A little cooler today! This has really been a very hot summer. Last week at 4:30 p.m., it was 103 degrees in Longmont. It was no doubt cooler here in Lyons. We used to say it was ten degrees cooler. We notice most of our lawns could stand a lot of water, but it’s too expensive. We praise those who are spending $300 to $400 a month for a nice green lawn! Get out the fans and the swamp coolers, is all I can tell you.

A great concert is in store with the Danny Shafer Band, plus the Farmer’s Market and food truck. The Blue Canyon Boys will be featured on Thursday, August 1.Read more: About Town - July 25, 2013

Wow! Lyons certainly got its taste of what happens when there is a catastrophe. Something new to most of us! The hail last Friday night is said to have ruined about 80% of the roofs in town, nearly 650 homes. At 6 a.m., Saturday morning, the town was full of roofing contractors. The insurance companies have their own repairmen who do the work for the amount the adjuster states, plus your deductible. Then another roofing company comes by “So and so isn’t any good, you should use me.” Now the confusion! Which one do you use? Of course we want the best job done. I guess this is a
