As our front page story and picture attest, Thursday night's thunderstorm was a strong one, managing -- among other things -- to knock out a major electric power distribution line to the Camden area. The only major reported incident was a barn fire resulting in a total loss.
We are officially one week away from the first day of school for students! One of the many blessings of working in education is you get to start fresh every year. (This is true for both students and the adults who work with them.)

A powerful thunderstorm knocked out power to most if not all of Camden on Thursday night, along with other city of Camden electric customers. Blinding lightning flashes struck around the city, causing minor damage at KershawHealth and, possibly setting fire to a barn on Firetower Farm Road.
