Hello again, fellow Creekers.
Well it looks like I was taken up on my offer in the last article to get a more accurate reading on the super-low temperatures that hit us over New Year’s. I originally had thought that it was close to minus 20 degrees.
I guessed that based upon taking accuweather’s numbers for Payson and subtracting another 7 degrees, since we always seem to be a few degrees cooler up here. I got more than one response giving me their readings. The overall consensus seems to be minus 14 degrees.
Still super cold. This number is also reflected on our very own fire department’s Web site www.ckfire.org where they listed it at minus 13.9 degrees.
As many of you know, this is the slowest time of the year for visitors up to Christopher Creek. As such, this is the hardest time of the year for the few businesses we have up here. I encourage everyone to continue to support the existing and up-and-coming businesses here in Christopher Creek. Remember that when the businesses do well it directly benefits everyone up here. Those revenues help pay for the road maintenance, plows, the fire department and many other services vital to this area. Plus more business equals more jobs. And of course, the more popular Christopher Creek is, the more valuable your property becomes.
Because it is extra slow this year, Cindy at the Creekside wanted me to inform everyone that they plan to be closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays until the busier season starts.
As always, I do need your help with content and stories! For anyone wanting to submit information from the Christopher Creek area for inclusion in our weekly article, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Any submitted pictures must be full-size (typically around 1MB per picture). The cutoff time for inclusion in Friday’s article is close of business on Monday.
