We’re just a couple of weeks away from Christmas Day and some folks up in Afton are giving the best Christmas gift ever this year. Clyde and Ruth Terry lost their entire home to fire about two weeks ago. Now their fellow fire and rescue family from The Rockfish Valley Volunteer Fire Department, along with friends are pitching in to rebuild their home. They may not make it quite in time for Christmas Day, but they won’t miss it by much. You can read the entire heartwarming story Yvette covered Sunday by clicking here or simply scrolling down.
Temperature wise the weather has been perfect for doing construction. Sunday’s afternoon high here at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine in Greenfield reached a Spring like 62 degrees. Not so good if you like winter weather. We’ll certainly be taking a vacation from freezing temps for most of this week. By week’s end we’ll see a return to more seasonal temperatures for this time of year. The next several days will be unsettled weather thanks to a stationary front in the area with plenty of clouds and showers from time to time. No one period will see any large amounts of rain, but we will see showers most anytime between now and Thursday. By next weekend we may actually be talking about snow chances once again in the mountains.
