Forecast By Tommy Stafford – Nelson County Life Magazine
Regional Animated Radar
Ok the good news and the not so good news. First the good news! Our NCL Weathernet Station is back online and reporting from the Rockfish Valley again (see the upper left of your screen) I replaced and installed the new hard drive last night. The bad news, it was late, very late finishing up, leaving little time for custom weather, therefore you’ll be left with a generic forecast for today.
Generally speaking it will be a warmer day with light showers in the morning with better chances of rain in the afternoon, with scattered thundershowers. More info later on.
There’s something about early Spring. You begin seeing hints of green, and then wham, snowflakes! Where did they come from. That’s part of the ritual in moving from Winter to warmer weather. It can’t really decide what it wants to do. But there’s one decision you don’t have to fret over, that’s stopping in at Ken & Yvonne Harris’ a.m. Fog on the Nelson-Albemarle Line along Route 151. They are as close to the farm as you can get!
Right now while Spring is still trying to make up it’s mind, they’ve already got; Asparagus, Lettuce, Cucumbers, STRAWBERRIES, strawberry onions (the best!!!), roasting potatoes, Idaho potatoes, carrots, green peppers, farm eggs, meat, & fresh baked bread.
And yea, they still have my favorite the trusty:
Local â€œHappy Steerâ€ Hormone and Antibiotic Free Meat
-Local Hormone & Antibiotic Free Chicken
Not to mention all of the other vegetables, annual, and perennial plants along with lots of fruit trees ready for the spring planting! Spring is here!
And have you seen that new beautiful farm market going up, they ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS NOW, and soon they’ll be featuring hot teas, coffee, muffins, and bread.
