Did you know?

Did you know that there was a meteor shower in Clear Spring on 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 it might be Judgment Day. One man’s neighbor who borrowed a bridle later denied that he borrowed it. On the morning after the shower, he brought it back to his neighbor and made tearful amends.
