Olivia Harris of a.m. Fog Shows Off One of The Homestead Creamery Varieties
Afton, Virginia

Most of you know by now that Yvette and I are expecting a child in the fall of this year. Yea, she’s been drinking the milk lots to keep up the calcium! She’s always liked Homestead Creamery milk. You know, it comes in those classic glass bottles, not far off of the kind the milkman used to deliver in simpler times. Most of the stores around here carried it, then one day she walked in and no more! Gone.

Folks this is one popular brand of milk and it’s the best around. No artificial hormones, and about as close to the cow as it comes! Yea, move over happy steer, we’ve got the happy cow now! As soon as Ken and Yvonne Harris up at a.m. Fog heard about this they jumped all over it! And, yep! They have the whole line of Homestead Creamery milk products in the familiar glass bottles, right there in their market on the Nelson-Albemarle County line on Route 151.

Nothing’s quite as good as a cold glass of milk from one of those chilled bottles!

And now you can get Homestead Creamery milk just up the road at a.m. Fog. along with all of your vegetables, plants and nursery needs to boot!

You can always visit them on the web at www.amfog.net or call ’em at 540-456-7100

Today’s weather photo is atop Wintergreen Fire Department’s newest ladder truck. We got the chance to look the new fire engine / aerial vehicle over. You can read, hear, and see much more by clicking here.

Monday was a much milder day with lower temperatures and humidity levels. The only station reporting any real rainfall was up at NCL-TWNF Devil’s Knob (Wintergreen Nature Foundation) with .22 inches of rain. Otherwise….there wasn’t much out there.

The bigger story, the temperatures. Last night much milder air filtered into Central Virginia and it was purely pleasant, enough so to raise the windows and allow the light breezes in.

The remainder of the week looks to be much the same with temps in the lower and mid 80’s. Widely scattered thunderstorms are in the forecast by the Independence Day Weekend, nothing that will wash out the holiday, but more the summer type of hit and miss garden variety thunderstorms.
