Montebello Store Makeover & Addition
Montebello, Virginia

Montebello Store

Hey before we get started, a huge thanks to, our long time friend and web reader, Paul Luke up in Washington D.C. Paul works for the feds up there, but reads out site each day. Friday he discovered it said Friday but had Thursday’s cast up there. Those darn gremlins at it again! Somewhere back in my files I have a picture of Paul when he worked in television with me at a tornado…I’ll have dig that one up! But thanks again for noticing the error Paul, this should have it fixed!

The folks at The Montebello Store in, where else, Montebello, are moving right along with their renovations and additions to the old store dating way, way back. In the picture above you can see the new wrap around porch and the huge dining room added on to the right. They are just about finished on the outside, and work is coming right along on the inside. They’ll certainly be done in time for warm weather next year when folks flock back to that area to fish and stay a night or two in a cabin. I love Montebello, it’s one of the best spots in Nelson and the folks at the store are the best! If you have never made the drive up there, you need to go take a look!

The weekend looks pretty seasonal for this time of year with chances for rain by Sunday. I can’t rule out the precip starting out as mix of sleet or snow with rain, bust as warmer air moves in, look for the mix to change to all rain. The bigger story will be the much colder temperatures moving in by next week. It will be a week that should be good for making lots of snow at Wintergreen Resort.

We got an e-mail from John Taylor early Friday that said:

Snow guns were on all night and they are still on at 9:50 am. (the ski bowl is
just now starting to get direct sunlight on it). It’s beginning to look a lot
like … winter!
