By David Rogers. April 15, 2014. BLOWING ROCK, NC -- Amid the sleet and rain on Tuesday afternoon, one McRary family member smiled before the special ceremony to dedicate the renaming of the Blowing Rock water treatment suggested, "Tom let the tank spill over." In presiding over the dedication, Mayor J.B. Lawrence looked up at the heavens and quipped, "Tommy, the joke's on you. We are here to honor your memory!"
