Storm over South Mountain
Yesterday a major storm rolled in. Rangers had to hold onto their hats as the wind picked up an the lead-gray clouds barreled across the lowering sky. A punishing south wind had the flag standing straight out from the flagpole, straining at the halyards, and as they say down here in Sharpsburg, "nothing good ever came from the south".
As the front rolled through we were left with a late afternoon of dramatic clouds and lighting. In a single glance you had your choice of low rainfilled clouds or bright blue sky.
The mountain always provides for exciting weather.
