Opening Hunt @ Oak Ridge Estate
Arrington, Virginia


The weekend was pretty typical for an early November Fall. Much of Sunday morning was cloudy and very cool, but perfect for the opening hunt of the Oak Ridge Fox Hunt Club seen in today’s weather photo above. The Fall air was just perfect for the hunt, that’s really just a chase! You can see more photos from Sunday’s event by clicking here.

Also want to remind everyone about this coming weekend’s Elegant Evening of Jazz at the Rockfish Valley Community Center, November 10th. This is an annual event and a really nice affair. Tickets are still on sale. You don’t want to miss this one, we’ve gone for the past three years in a row! Just click on the link above for all of the details.

Today will be the last, somewhat warm day, for the remainder of the week as a cold front is working toward us with the promise of light scattered showers tonight followed by windy conditions and colder weather later in the week. I can’t even rule out the snow word by the end of this week but that’s a long way off right now. We may see a mix of rain and snow by Friday, some folks in the mountains west of the BRP may even see a few flakes of snow on Tuesday as the front exits the area. Nothing to write home over, but proof we are headed toward the winter season.

The current national forecast map shows a cold front working through the area over the next 36 hours. Today will start out mostly sunny, but become increasingly more cloudy and breezy as the day wears on. Chances for showers increase into the night time hours lingering into Tuesday morning.
