Mother Nature opened the door Tuesday, welcoming Mr. Fall into Oxford, hopefully ending an usually warm autumn.
Fall announced his arrival in a big way, too, causing thunderstorms and reports of pea-sized hail in the College Hill area.
The storms blew down several trees and knocked down some power lines around Oxford and Lafayette County, causing sporadic power outages around the area. However the rain did little to alleviate dry conditions around the county. (October 13, 2010, Page 3)
Several Oxford residents and businesses are still seeing only a trickle of water coming from their pipes since a fallen power pole sparked a series of events that lead to loss of water pressure around town Wednesday. (September 23, 2010, Page 1)
A blown switch at the Oxford Electric Department substation left about 1,500 residents without power for about an hour Tuesday afternoon. (May 12, 2010, Page 1)
