MCGC Neighbors Weekly News Blast

Let It Snow!

And it has!  Lynn Swanson, a Murphy Creek resident, gathers snow data every day in his back yard, which is officially designated as CO-AR-249.  He reports Murphy Creek data daily to the COCORHS web site, along with the data reported from numerous Colorado collection stations. The data is available here for anyone to search. 

Here is a breakdown of the numbers and what they mean. Overall this winter has been below average, so far.  Total snowfall for this season is 11.2" inches, yielding 1.03" of water when melted.  As expected for early winter, we have been receiving colder 'drier' snow.  This means that over 10 inches of snow is needed to produce an inch of water.  With receiving only one inch of water in two months, the trees and plants in your yard will appreciate a drink sometime in January!  Choose a nice day when there is no snow cover to give them all some water.

These are the numbers:

In November we had 4.3" of snow.  The average is 8.7".

In December we had 6.9" of snow.  The average is 8.5". (For daily Murphy Creek details, click here.)

While we've lucked out by having missed what should have been one or two big storms with our name on them, we're behind on water for the winter.  That being said, there's still plenty of time left for "Old Man Winter" to deal us some surprises.

Christmas Tree Recycling

What To Do With Your Christmas Tree?

Recycle your Christmas tree by taking it to one of the city’s recycling locations.  The one closest to us is the Saddle Rock Golf Course, 21705 E. Arapahoe Rd.

Your tree will be mulched and can be used again in our yards and gardens.  Drop off is free - just remove any nails, decorations and tinsel.  January 12 is the last day trees will be accepted. 

Mulch is also available while supplies last. Take your truck or bags and containers.  And you’ll need a shovel for self-loading.

Please note:  the Murphy Creek Golf Course is NOT one of the recycling locations, so please don't take your trees there.
