July 7, 2013 — We have exceeded our quota of strong evening thunderstorms, dangerous lightning, and heavy downpours lately as it seems we have been in Mother Nature’s Bull-Eye. One of our volunteers, Kyle Dixon, snapped this photo as dark storm clouds gathered over Rev. Duke’s Log House at the Historical Society just before dusk.
When Rev. Duke built his home over 214 years ago on Bow Street in the center of Elkton, he built it to last. So after centuries of hurricanes, windstorms, nor’easters, windstorms, and howling blizzards, this blast and those rather threatening dark clouds were nothing.
