Sunday Morning's Storm. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 3 January 1912
Sunday Morning's Storm, j A very heavy wind and thunderstorm followed for a couple of hours by a steady fall of rain, broke over the district be tween 6 and 7 o'clock on Sunday morning. The wind blew fiercely for a couple of hours from the north, and then gave a-way to refreshing rain which was of appreui able benefit in cooling the atmosphere temporarily, and also in replenishing water supplies. The registration at the Forbes Host Office up to nine o'clock on I Sunday morning, ny which time the rain had practically ceased, was Co points, and we gather that other local and district registrations were about the same. The downpour caused a marked fresh in the lagoon, and on Sunday evening the water commenced to overflow part of the road • j way at Wood's Crossing, as a result of the j incoming water from gilgais and water- j ways on the Parkes road.

The leading vocalist o£ the even ing was Miss Winnie Fraser, a Syd ney lady, who accomplished dis tinct success and gained loud ap plause in both her principal appear ances.
