Tuesday was a pleasant day across Central Virginia and Nelson County. Humidity levels were lower and sometimes breezy winds made it feel even cool when the sun was behind the clouds. All in all Tuesday was a great day with plenty of sun just like the scene above as you head into Massies Mill from 56 west.
Last night was a really, really pleasant night in Nelson. We had much cooler temperatures, just perfect for a game of barn pong at AM Fog in Afton. We first told you about those guys about a year ago. They get together every Tuesday night and play ping pong in a barn at Ken & Yvonne Harris’ barn. Some of them have been playing for nearly 20 years!
On the current surface map below, a cold front has moved to our east and is bringing in cooler air for the next day or so.
