Jepson Field Book volume 66 page 128
Tule Fog -For two weeks, or more, heavy high menacing banks of tule fog lower on the ridge of the Berkeley Hills this January, flooding was a bit as driven by the wind like water. By this token I know there is tule fog in the Great Valley, by the token, too, that the valley of San Francisco Bay remains clear _ although when the North Wind is high, banks of it are driven south over the Santa Cruz ridge, banks pour through the gap of Carquinez Straits to the Mt. Tamalpais ridges. My teaching assistant, Mr. L. Constance, coming by pain from Oregon said there was no fog in the upper Sacramento Valley (about Jan. 16), but a later report from Tracy says three weeks tule fog. It covers the delta region and adjoining land. _ Jan. 25, 1934.  ::::::::: The Tiny Villages  -Frank Dickie says that he was born at Gangtown, 4 or 5 miles south of Denverton _ a place consisting of a blacksmith shop, a house or two, and a church. He was born in 1871.  -Binghamton was probably in existence before the arrival of the railroad in Solano County. Yes _ because, the _armory_ was built in Civil War days.  -Batavia, a little hamlet with a country store, a station on the railway; a blacksmith shop; perhaps in the old days a post office.  -Rockville, a few dwellings, a school, and a church.  -Denverton, a store, a blacksmith shop.  -Silveyville.  Cont. from p. 94. With his ears. And a mule is a highly intelligent animal. A boy does not wish his ears bothered! Ergo, a boy is a highly intelligent animal!
