Yet another example of Mother Nature in her glory was captured recently by Leonard Sipes Jr., who snapped this shot recently along Garrett Highway (U.S. Rt. 219) south of Oakland following a thunderstorm. Sipes, who intends to retire to Garrett County next year, currently hosts radio and television shows for the federal government, and was in the area conducting an interview with Bob Boal, president of the Garrett County Historical Society. While weather conditions have turned cooler thanks to a front that moved through the county yesterday, seasonable temperatures are predicted for the next week-plus, with no sign of frost in the forecast.
