What is the “Silver Creek Vortex”? The geology of our area with the South Mountains on one side and the Appalachians on the other has the peculiar effect of causing rain storms to detour around us. There are many times when it’s pouring in town, while we enjoy blue skies at Silver Creek. So don’t let a rainy forecast deter you! Chances are you’ll be fine, and if not, our generous rain check policy will not leave you hanging.
