Enough is enough! Yet it keeps on raining. Welcome to a very mix weather report for the 4th of July holiday. The heavy rains hit often and so did the humid weather. We sure do have unsettled weather here. It has helped the insects to multiply. They do not care who they bite. So glad everyone is safe after the terrible storm that hit the area a couple of weeks ago. Thanks again to all the crews having to work on what Mother Nature did.
It was nice to hear that the fireworks were really great. So many out to enjoy them.
Agnes Straight is happy to have her son, Darrell Hitchcock, here for his vacation. Her son, Scott Hitchcock, will be arriving in a few days.
Be careful when traveling the mountains. A huge bear has been seen several times near the George Dunkley Hill on Route 8 leaving Bakers Mills. Many wild critters are out and about running free.
After Ian Conlon was in the hospital to have tonsils and adenoids out and trying to be careful at home, three days later had to spend a couple more days back in the hospital wondering about dehydration. He is doing better and happy to spend the weekend with his father, Alonzo, and brother, Aaron, camping.
The Underwood reunion was recently held, and everyone had a great time sharing and having pictures taken. Emma Underwood Parsons and her children and offsprings were happy to attend.
