Over the fence
A weird storm ripped through the Kenyontown area in the early evening hours on Sept. 28.
The storm started with fierce winds taking lawn chairs and ornaments and other debris for a spin, then came a few big flashes of lightening before we got pelted with downpour of a rain and hailstones with strong winds making it sound fierce. Fortunately, Thurmanites did not lose power.
Some of our fair-weather neighbors are heading south for the winter months, leaving us all to do the shoveling and plowing, Thanks folks!
