Changing the light bulbs
Nellysford, Virginia

So how do you change a light bulb way up there? With a forklift of course! Kay Pfaltz upon her pedestal changes out the lights in front of Basic Necessities. Brian Kidd of Wintergreen Hardware drives the forklift, I mean mobile pedestal to help out. Amy Chiilds of Taylor’s Creek was sitting in Basic when she saw Kay out front rising above, she sent this pic to us! Thanks Amy!

Well, Wednesday was another perfect day to be out changing the outdoor lights. It even got hot in some parts of Central Virginia as warm high pressure controls our weather. Though we had some morning clouds and light drizzle, that quickly gave way to mostly sunny skies and very warm, in truth, hot, temperatures. Thursday and much of the extended period looks very similar with warm conditions and unfortunately, very minimal chances for rain.

Also I want to mention that yes, yours truly, will be the emcee for The Wintergreen Nature Foundation’s annual golf tournament tomorrow over at Stoney Creek Golf Course. This ought to be a real interesting day since I still don’t really know how to play golf yet! Not to worry I am just riding around in the golf cart and talking! Seriously, it’s a great cause with a nice silent auction, and a great day of golf. The guys at TWNF do great work on preservation here in Nelson and this is a big benefit for them. See you there!
