It was a shout of surprised laughter from Quincy Library Group attorney Michael Jackson.

Along for the ride on the tour were Quincy Library Group members, a Sierra Forest Legacy representative, local landowners, Forest Service officers and other forest stakeholders.

Extravaganza headed this way

It will rain in Blairsden the weekend of Aug. 20 -21. It will rain at 8 p.m. Friday evening. It will rain at 4 p.m. Saturday as well and again at 8.

It will flash lightning and thunder will roar. The sound of wind will add to the mix and rain will be heard pelting the roof. There will be a full-scale thunderstorm with all of its drama and majesty, but the storm will be a very local affair, and no one need worry about lightning strikes or wildfire.
