Recent rain and snow have raised the level of Christopher Creek.
Hello again, fellow Creekers.
It’s been another interesting, but great winter in Christopher Creek. We really do seem to have our own weather pattern that can be very unpredictable. This year we received several inches of snow in early November and then quite a bit of snow in late December and now again in February.
The storm a few weeks ago brought several inches of rain. See Springs feeds into Christopher Creek and all the rain made Christopher Creek very full. At the Christopher Creek Lodge the water came up almost to the top of the bank. The guests were excited to see the creek so full of water.
The water level had been quite low last fall after they pumped the water from the creek to help with the fires. Since then the water has gone down a few inches but the creek is still very full.
Thank you Brendon Lewis, manager at the Christopher Creek Lodge, for the pictures of the creek.
Last weekend and at the beginning of this week we received quite a few inches of snow again in Christopher Creek. School was canceled for the day and children in town enjoyed their day off playing in the snow. The only predictable thing about the weather in Christopher Creek is that whether it’s snowing or is sunny, it always makes for beautiful scenery.
