THE CEDARTOWN RECORD says, "that a singular phenomenon was lately witnessed
by many persons in different parts of Polk county. About four o'clock in the
afternoon, oak, sycamore, willow and beach leaves, together with twigs and
wild peas, were seen to come down from the sky above and settle upon the
ground. On looking up the air seemed to be full of leaves as far as the eye
could see. The inference is that they were twisted by a cyclone and carried
so high that they were just reaching terra firma again. (The Daily
Constitution, Atlanta, GA, July 4, 1878)
