Knights Ferry News for August 8, 2012

POSTED August 7, 2012 2:34 p.m.

Last Saturday evening your reporter sat on the porch swing and watched the fingers of verga sweep over the hills, punctuated by bolts of lightning. This was possible because grandson Alex cut down the 30-year-old oleander hedge that had gotten way too big!

Gary and Sharon Page were in the mountains during this same storm and Sharon said the thunder and lightning were right overhead!
