Very peculiar day. Rained in morning about 11, cleared around 1 and then clouded over as if it would shower around 4, but did not rain. Got black & lighteninged (sic) all around about 9 o’clock. Took ride in afternoon down to Elizabeth, Westfield to Summit to Chatham & then home. Went to Suffern after supper. Left there early as it looked like showers. We kept going toward shower but did not run in to it. Seemed to go around. Geo drove all way to Suffern & back & half way in afternoon. Not a very hot day – picked cherries in morning.
