Did you know?

Did you know that there was a meteor shower in Clear Spring Nov. 13, 1833?

Meteors the size of a man's fist fell from the sky in the middle of the night. People were frightened and thought that it might be Judgment Day.

One man's neighbor, who had borrowed a bridle and then denied that he borrowed it, brought it back the morning after the meteor shower and made a tearful amends to his neighbor.
