To buy or not to buy flood insurance? We are in Rural North Boulder, but NOT in flood zone. We had serious damage in finished basement in 2013 flood.
Contact your insurance agent and they can give you the best way to go. Sorry you were part of that flood in 2013 and hope you are getting back to some "normalcy" in your life.
