A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
How about this for a hedge against inflation?
The Postal Service's governing board is considering issuing the "forever" stamp.
It would stay valid for mailing a letter no matter how much rates may go up.
Oh, and by the way, the board is also thinking about asking for a three-cent increase in the first-class rate for spring of 2007.
The board meets today.
Like most Americans, the agency is feeling the bite of rising fuel prices.
Other costs are also up.
The forever stamp would help soften the blow of a rate increase by allowing customers to stock up.
As originally proposed it would sell for the first class rate and, once purchased, would always remain valid.
Any proposed change would go to the independent Postal Rate Commission, which has ten months to act.
