Hughesville Locals May 10, 2017

By Staff | May 15, 2017

I enjoy a breezy day in springtime, but the winds that we have experienced lately have caused a lot of havoc for many residents. Trees that have withstood the wide range of local weather patterns have succumbed to the forces of the gusts. The surplus of rainfall at the same time has saturated the ground and many trees simply were pulled right out of the ground. I hope we have seen the last of this type of weather for a very long time. Our place was relatively untouched, but I was sad to see that a new robin’s nest, complete with four perfect eggs, was blown out of our white pine tree. Other than that, the leaves littered across the yard and some thinning of an overgrown lilac bush were the only effects in our yard. We will all be happy to see some sunny, dry days, but the forecast seems to indicate that we may have more wet weather this week.

There are many things happening here in Hughesville, so be sure to check your calendar so you know which things are going on that will interest you. Besides special occasions, the Hughesville Area Public Library and the East Lycoming Historical Museum are open and able to give you many hours of pleasure, information, and educational experiences. Be sure to make yourself familiar with both of these local gems.
