Extravaganza headed this way
Diana JorgensonPortola Editor8/14/2010
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.
