First Day of Summer is a Freezer Here: June 22, officially the first day of summer, and the longest of the year, was ushered in here with frost. Not only was there frost, but in some districts it was hard enough to damage gardens, both corn and potatoes being nipped, according to reports reaching Fallon. Wind, too, has had its inning during the past week, although reports of damaged buildings have reached Fallon, many trees lost big branches.
