LYONS, Colo. -- The owners of the Button Rock Bakery in Lyons were supposed to open their new business in September.

Then the historic floods hit.

"What's gonna happen? We didn't know," co-owner Jaime Lachel remembers thinking.

Three months later, the town's newest hot spot opened on Monday. Then the cold and snow hit Tuesday and Wednesday. But that has not stopped Button Rock from a busy first week.

The bakery is not far from where Gov. Hickenlooper and other dignitaries took a tour of the hard-hit flooded area. The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development announced $63 million worth of aid would be coming into the state.

Which was news to Jaime Lachel and the Button Rock Bakery.

Actually, after a successful first week, it was "icing on the cake."
