Today’s weather and is brought to you exclusively by:
am fog 4.16.08-A

I was chatting with Ken Harris of a.m. Fog on the phone recently and he told me about one of the neatest things that’s just happened over at their place on the Albermarle / Nelson line along Route 151. Yea, we all know them for their great nursery and greenhouse products, but now they are also carrying one of Nelson’s favorite and award winning wines from Delfosse Vineyard & Winery at Faber, Virginia over near Hickory Creek.

And later this month they begin “Thirsty Third Thursdays” wine tasting, at a.m. Fog, that starts Thursday July 31st 4-8 PM. The event continues on into the fall.

And yea, we told you first about Homestead Creamery milk a few weeks ago. That’s available in the farm market at a.m. Fog. This is the real thing in those familiar glass bottles. It gets delivered fresh every Wednesday!

And to celebrate a.m. Fog’s 5 years in business, all trees & shrubs are 50% off. Folks this won’t happen again until their 10 year anniversary, so get ’em while you can.

Yvonne says, new shipments of corn arrive every Tuesday and Friday plus they’re picking loads of green beans, cukes, zukes, & squash. Tomatoes & peppers are just starting to come in along with ORGANICALLY grown and conventional peaches too. Cantaloupes are on sale this week 1.79 each or 2 for 5.00…now that’s a deal!

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

Thanks to Henri and Elaine Weems of Rodes Farm. They recently grabbed this shot of storm clouds forming over Pilot Mountain toward Crozet. You guys don’t have bad view from your place at all!!

Yesterday was a very hot one with only a few scattered thunderstorms across the area. The humidity began working back in within the past 24 hours which has made it very muggy feeling even at night. Afternoon highs climbed into the mid and upper 90’s in valley locations, with the mountains even nearing the mid 80’s.

That trend continues for the next several day with really hot temps as the norm.

No organized widespread rains are on the horizon, but some folks will get one more shot today and tonight, before chances diminish once again. Some of the storms today could be locally severe.
