Out of Luck!

Most of the residents live by the golden rule.

Inside tip: If you happen to lose anything at the Sunnyside Diner, Christy will be glad to take your number and call you if it turns up in the lost and found.

Lost Time!

Design Spring foward

One of the first signs of spring is the clock moving an hour ahead for daylight saving time. This has been a harsh winter so any sign of spring coming is welcomed by most residents. For travelers new to Griddle Creek, the town does observe daylight saving time, please adjust your watches so you are on time for all of your scheduled activities. Do not rely on the clocks around town as some establishments, like the Sunnyside Diner, may be slow to adjust their clocks.

Inside tip: Make sure to adjust the time on all of your clocks and watches in the right direction.

Ice Box!

Inside tip: If you happen to be in Griddle Creek this week we suggest you stay inside and order room service.
