Christopher Davis of Martinsburg, W.Va., took this photo in early May of an ominous sky over Hagerstown Community College, where he works as a database administrator. He used a Sony DSC-F828 Cybershot with a circular polarizer. He used Photoshop to "stitch" the images together to make the panoramic shot.

SHARPSBURG - The power went out during the first line of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and by the time the rodeo crowd's a capella rendition reached "home of the brave," several hundred people began running for cover from a fast-moving thunderstorm Saturday night. Many of those attending the Forever Blue Rodeo at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center scrambled for their cars or huddled under the stands, hoping the storm would pass. The bronco riding competition actually went on, but organizers decided to postpone the other events until today at 2 p.m. Performers for Bullride Mania of Gettysburg, Pa., were anxious to get on with the show Saturday night, but the rain, wind and lightning persisted long enough to postpone the bull riding, steer wrestling, barrel racing and other competitions.

The band was the first of several acts that were booked to provide entertainment at Fireworks in the Park, an event the town has held since 2005 to celebrate the Fourth of July. "I think the weather is kind of holding us back," Town Councilman Jeff Cline said, referring to the day's rain. The event usually draws about 3,000 people, who gather early to watch the 45-minute fireworks display at night, Cline said.

The heat index hit 101 degrees in the Hagerstown area Monday, and that miserable feeling of being hot and muggy isn't expected to diminish until Saturday, according to weather officials. “Pretty much, this is typical summer weather,” National Weather Service meteorologist Howard Silverman said Monday. Temperatures are a few degrees warmer than normal this time of year, but the area is transitioning into its usual hot summertime pattern, Silverman said. The heat wave along the East Coast and reaching west into the Mississippi River Valley is due to a “big dome of high pressure” that came inland from the Atlantic Ocean, Silverman said.

Summer officially begins today with the summer solstice. On this day, the North Pole is at its closest point to the sun, making it the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. But if that's the case, why do temperatures get warmer as the summer progresses instead of the longest day of the year being the hottest? William O'Toole, weather prognosticator for The Gruber Almanack LLC, which produces the “Hagers-Town Town and Country Almanack,” said that it takes time for the energy from the sun to heat up the atmosphere.
