Camp Jeep
Oak Ridge Estate : Arrington, VA

It’s official, Camp Jeep 2007 in Nelson County is underway. We spent much of the day out at Oak Ridge Estate in Arrington on Thursday. What a heck of an event! There will be tons of Camp Jeep pics and video throughout the weekend right here on our site, so check back often. You can see more picture by scrolling down or clicking here. There is even a category named Camp Jeep, so by clicking on it, you will see anything and everything Camp Jeep.

We lucked out Thursday with most areas in Nelson staying dry. Some scattered thunderstorms did fire up points west and south, but as we predicted, the intense activity stayed well west of the Blue Ridge. Friday will be another day much like Thursday where we start out with some sun, showers and storms will develop by afternoon across the area. There is a slightly better chance of seeing storms east of the BRP today and especially on Saturday. Again, the next several days will by no means be rainy events all of the time, but decent chances are there for scattered storms in the afternoons.

Here’s the numbers from our very own NCL Weathernet sites Thursday:
