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 or call ’em at 540-456-7100

Thanks to Mike Patterson of Arrington for sharing today’s weather photo. This is his balloon they were inflating in the eastern part of Nelson a few days ago. Mike’s one of the NCL-Weathernet stations as well, the one there just above at Mini-Tara Vineyard. He’s started a balloon company called Balloon Club of America-South. Looks like they had perfect weather for a takeoff that morning. See you up above Mike!

Also want to mention there will be lots of events taking place this holiday weekend. You can see many of them by visiting our datebook section by clicking here.

Tuesday was a pretty cool day for most folks. Many valley temps struggled to make it out of the 70’s and up on the mountains afternoon highs were only in the mid 60’s. Clouds hung in for much of the day and some very isolated showers moved through from time to time but most areas stayed dry and cool.

Today we’ll see much more sunshine and warmer temps right on into Thursday.

By The 4th of July we’ll begin to see an increase in scattered afternoon thunderstorms with temps varying from near 90° then lower 80’s through early next week. The showers and thunderstorms forecast for the coming holiday weekend won’t rain out events widespread, but anyone could see a pop up storm most anytime by the time we get to Friday afternoon.
