Fire Danger Reduced By Cooler Temperatures, Rains


There is not a lot going on in Christopher Creek, except for all the rain.

We are loving the cooler temperatures and the afternoon rains.

It is keeping the fire danger down and the forest green. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't clean up your property.

It is a nice time to work outside and clean up your yards and take advantage of the grant money that is out there.
