Sunset in Roseland along 151
Roseland, Virginia

Here’s a shot from a beautiful sunset along 151 in Roseland. The photographer wanted to remain unknown, but sent this great shot along. What a perfect ending to a really hot day! If you like hot days read on! If you don’t quit right here.

Did you get your hot and muggies on Thursday. No? Well you really have the chance over the next few days! If you like hot and muggy weather you’re in luck, so is CVEC, the electric meter will really spin part of this weekend. Can you say near 100? I thought so! Though we do have the chance for some scattered thunderstorms this afternoon, it will still remain dry in most areas. We’ll have a couple of moderate days in between, but look for several days of upper 90’s on the way!
