REFRESH Nelson County Life Magazine HERE for the latest updates:

First let’s welcome back Wintergreen Winery to the NCL Weathernet. Jeff has had a fit with lightning over the past week to ten days. You can ask him, but it got into just about everything there, including his computer network! However, he’s back online now!

Near Beech Grove, Virginia

Thursday was a beautiful day with milder temperatures and the humidity much lower than we have seen in days. Just perfect for Lilly in the picture above at the Rockfish Trail just south of Spruce Creek and Nellysford. Peter Agelasto was giving Lilly a treat as we took a look around. There’s a big Rockfish River Day this coming Saturday afternoon. You can read more about it by clicking here in our datebook.
