ALBION – It was about 2:15 this afternoon when the storm clouds burst, drenching Orleans County.

I was in the main courtroom in the Orleans County Courthouse when the room suddenly got much darker from the stormy sky outside. Then we could hear the rain pounding against the windows.

After court was over, I took a picture through one of the windows. The County Clerk’s Building is next door to the Courthouse. Both are part of the Courthouse Square, a cluster of about 35 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
