Wednesday was another muggy day across Nelson County. But many folks saw much needed rain, though amounts were not as impressive as some seen on Tuesday. With cloud cover, temps didn’t climb as high either, but with the humidity it was still pretty nasty outdoors. A cold front that’s moved through is bringing in drier air.
The spotty rain and muggy temps didn’t put a damper on the opening night of Wintergreen Performing Arts. After a long day, our NCL photographer, Paul Purpura spent the evening getting shots at the the opening gala. This is going to be a fantastic season for WPA. You can see more of what Paul shot last night by clicking here.
