Smoke snaked into the air from the direction of the Pentagon.
Floyd County High School’s annual cross country meet at Rocky Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway pitted the Buffaloes against Eastern Montgomery and Roanoke Catholic amid the clouds and misty conditions Wednesday afternoon. The FCHS boys varsity team took a victory. Roger Mannon’s story and more of my photos in next week’s Floyd Press.
