Good morning Custer County and our friends on the web – This is the Wet Mountain Wake Up Call for today, Tuesday, April 20th, 2021.
• Today’s National Weather Service Forecast calls for partly sunny skies and highs 35 to 41. East winds up to 10 mph. Overnight, cloudy with a 30 percent chance of snow. Lows 18 to 21.
• Grape Creek is flowing at 344 gallons per second which is about double the normal flow rate. Our snow survey site at South Colony is part of the larger Arkansas River Basin. The basin is polling at 87% of average flow, but south colony is doing the heavy lifting at 106% of local flow.
• According to CDPHE’s ArcGIS database, Custer County added 1 new COVID case since last week, bringing us to 178 cases. This lifts two of our score categories from green to blue. 2,851 tests have been administered, up 2 from yesterday, 56 in the last week. All of the counties along I-25 are yellow except for us. At the moment, there are 118 cases of COVID variants circulating in Pueblo, Chaffee, Huerfano, and Fremont Counties, but none yet in Custer County.
• Grab-n-go lunches and Meals on Wheels are available today at the Custer County senior center. Call 783-9508 before 9:30 am to reserve today’s box which contains: Macaroni and cheese, a side of asparagus, a banana, whole wheat roll with butter, and a salad
• The folks at My Neighbor’s Cupboard will be distributing boxes of food today from 4-6 and on Saturday from 10-2 in the school parking lot. If the distribution from the sharing center doesn’t quite make ends meet, this is a good place to turn to.
• Today, the Emergency Food Assistance Program is distributing boxes at the Custer County Courthouse at 205 S. 6th Street. Bring verification that you live in Custer County. Distribution starts shortly after 8:00 AM at the south end of the scale house behind the court house. You’ll need access to freezer space It’s all first come, first served.
• And it looks like no smoke, no fire, no roadwork!
