Want to say thank you to Tom & Betsy Smith of Richmond. They sent us today’s weather photo. Yea, it looks a lot like one Ann Strober sent last week. That’s because they have a place near hers in Nellysford. The Smith’s also sent a really nice e-mail with their photo:

Just writing to you and Yvette again to say how much we LOVE Nelson County Life and look forward to every issue. We patronize your advertisers, and have made several good contacts for handyman and other services, so be sure to let your advertisers know that your readers are paying attention.

I’m enclosing several photographs my wife took last week in Nellysford before the snow. We have a house near Ann Strober and share an enjoyment of photography. Feel free to use these as you see fit.

Again, thanks for a great paper!! It truly is PRICELESS!

We continue with our look & listen to local Nelson music artists. This week we’ll be hearing tracks from lefty mandolin & guitarist, Jeff Vogelgesang. Yep that would be Jan’s Smith’s 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.

Tuesday was pretty much as predicted. Not a lot of precipitation, and what did fall wasn’t a factor. We saw some sleet across much of Central Virgina. In the higher elevations large snowflakes fell for a short time, but no one really had any accumulation since the temperatures were just above freezing by the time the moisture arrived. There’s a chance for snow showers again on Thursday, possibly beginning as early as Wednesday night, but just like the last system, this doesn’t look too impressive. Just some scattered snow showers, enough to let you know winter is alive.

After Thursday’s system we get some reinforcing cold air. By the end of the upcoming weekend we have a gradual warm up and chances for rain by Sunday. Temps Sunday into Monday begin working toward the 50° mark.

Remember to check out the latest entries on our site by looking to your left under recent posts. We have lots of neat stuff up there including recent news, restaurant specials, happenings at the local wineries and the brewery, just to mention a few!
