On the 23rd May 1902, there was a great rain storm. There was a lot of bridges tumbled. There is a little river running through Mr. James Gailey's farm. This river was stopped by the stones and the mud carried down by the water. The water turned across a field and made another river. This place is still to be seen.

In the summer of 1918, there was a great drought period. All streams and wells went dry. Some people had to go with carts for water to give to cattle, and they had to go nearly a mile.
