The hills of a small town called Beulah are alive again with the look of green, and that's a far cry from last year.
That's when taps ran dry during Colorado's worst-ever drought. Water had to be trucked in 25 miles from Pueblo.
But this year, a new 500-thousand-gallon storage tank is full, and residents are talking about how lush and beautiful the valley has become.
The precipitation bonanza continued yesterday when nearly two more inches of rain fell in the Beulah Valley.
That's more rain in one day than the area received during the irst six-and-a-half months of 2002.
