PUEBLO WEST – Well, it could have been worse. That’s what Jay Michael Baker with the Pueblo West Metro District told News5 on Thursday, after the second blast of winter in a month, the “Baby Bomb” ripped off a temporary roof on the Pueblo West Administration building on Wednesday.

They are still recovering from the damage caused by the actual “Bomb Cyclone” storm that ripped through the region in March, waiting on insurance claims to see what it will cost to replace the roof. Well, the temporary roof was blown off, forcing them to close the building, but he is glad that hadn’t totally rebuilt before this second storm blew through.

Baker said “it is a little frustrating but again timing isn’t that bad right now, we are still waiting to hear from insurance on what we are going to do with the building, it is just one more aspect to that but it’s better than having it completely repaired and having another problem.”

The Metro District still believes the building can be salvaged. As they continue to assess, he says most of the district’s business is currently being run out of San Isabel Electric in Pueblo West.
