In this weekend’s weather photo above, Hayley Osborne, captured this fabulous shot of cubbing in Virginia. That’s an event that precedes the opening day of fox hunting next month. Very Virginia! November is Hayley’s first month shooting and writing with NCL, but not the last! You’ll be seeing her work every month in our pages and here on the web. Hayley’s entire photo layout and story can be found on page 12 of the current November NCL issue hitting the shelves this weekend!
The weekend has been excellent thus far! Today will be another nice day. No rain on Saturday, but what we got last week was really nice. You can get details from all of the reporting NCL-Weathernet stations by selecting your station from the pull down menu in the upper left hand corner of your screen. Today looks nice with cool Fall like temperatures. Sunday night into early next week promises some frost and freezing temperatures.
