Jeff Mandolin [7]
We continue with our look & listen to local Nelson music artists. This week we’ll be hearing tracks from lefty mandolin & guitarist, Jeff Vogelgesang [8]. Yep that would be Jan’s Smith’s [9] hubby. You heard Jan week before last right here. Be sure to check out Jeff’s info below and learn how you can have Jeff and Jan come play at your very own event! Stay tuned to hear today’s cut as we head out of weather.

Hope you were wearing the long johns Sunday and Sunday night! It’s been a very cold 24 hours. Don’t look for much relief from the cold temps this coming week, though we’ll moderate a bit for daytime highs as the week progresses. But there is no real warm up in sight! Wind chill readings have frequently been hitting below zero from time to time over the past day. Look for brisk temps again Monday but valley locations will be able to make it above freezing, barely. On the mountains you’ll never see 32° until probably Wednesday when the mid 30’s make it up above 2000 feet.

By Tuesday another system is taking aim at Nelson with chances for a light rain or snow mix. After that, the next chance for significant rain is late next weekend. Temps continue to be great for snow making as the mountains will be in the teens every night as we head toward next weekend.
