Hayley on Crutches

So you heard us mention briefly that our newest photographer and writer, Hayley Osborne, had a nasty spill from her horse about a week ago.

From our November 24th post:

“Our Valley Photographer, Hayley Osborne (we thought about calling her valley girl, but then, NOT!) had a little mishap with a certain horse. Ask her, horse went left, she went right! Hayley was going to shoot this, but a little tough on crutches!”

Hayley shot and wrote our cover story for the December issue of NCL about A Family Tree, page 11, on Cub Creek Road. It’s out on stands now! We caught up with Hayley today for the first time since her little mishap and found she’s doing fine, but for sure is on the crutches sporting a nice “fashionable” white leg brace. Hayley is an avid runner, so not being able to run is really getting on her nerves …. think it gonna be awhile Hayley! Anyway, we want to wish her a speedy recover, and if you want to send Hayley get well wishes, you can e-mail her: Hayley-at-NelsonCountyLife.Com The reason we type the “@” symbol spelled out is because this prevents those nasty spam search robots from grabbing this from our website, simply replace the “at” with @.

Tuesday was a perfect late Fall day. A good day to be out on your horse riding, or playing golf, you name it. Though the wind made it feel a little chilly, once the afternoon rolled around, it became pleasant. Honestly this is a pretty quiet weather week coming up. The next major change on the horizon is the chance of snow by late in the weekend on Sunday night. Numerically speaking, we are just now heading into the time we begin seeing the chance for snow. By late November and into December our odds increase. We’ll take it. They have already started making some snow up at Wintergreen Resort, and as the average temperatures become colder it will make their job much easier.

Look for cold nights and seasonal days through the weekend, with that chance of snow by Sunday night. We’ll keep you posted on that as it develops.
