Many without power from stormy weather


Rain, rain, rain and more rain would fit our weather forecast for the past two weeks. Thankfully Sunday morning the sun came out and stayed out all day.

Many communities were without electricity all day on Friday and some longer than that. The wind and rain took down many trees all around the county and caused mud slides and flooding too.
