The other week my husband'
and I went fishing. The problem
was that we did not pay close at
tention to the weather forecast. So
on our way to Schuylkill County
we ran into heavy rain showers.
When we arrived at Tuscarora
State Paik, we had to sit in our
truck until the rain was over.
While sitting there, Allen saw
a large bird far in the woods.
Its red and white feathers at
tracted our attention. It was a
big bird with an unusual call,
cuk-cuk-cuk-cuk-cuk which rose
and fell in pitch. It was a pileated

Finally the sun came out and we
had two hours of sun while we
motored from place to place in our
boat trying to find a spot where the
fish were biting. I only caught a
small perch but Allen got a
14-inch catfish which made a nice
meal for us the next day.
Soon afterward, I noticed a dark
cloud, which was soon followed
by thunder. When we started for
the other side of the lake, we dis-

leaders, and game leaders were ac-
covered that the battery was dead
and Allen had to row across in a
heavy rain shower. We managed
to tie the boat to a limb and get out
during the thunder storm. After
climbing a rock-strewn hillside
covered with wet leaves, Allen
pointed me in the direction of our
truck while he donned rain gear
and finally brought the boat back
to the dock.
In a little while the sun again
appeared and some cars arrived
bringing other fishermen who
fished from the shore. One group
contained a little boy who caught a
small fish and his gleeful laughter
could be heard across the water.
Next time I’ll check the weather
before we leave home.
