The shot above is from this past weekend’s performances at The Hamner Theater in the Rockfish Valley Community Center. Lots of bands came out and played to benefit Sk8 Nelson, a group trying to bring a real skate park to Nelson County. Be looking for more events and information on SK8 Nelson as they become more organized. And you can always visit The Hamner Theater website to see all of the upcoming acts there. A big thanks to Nancy over at the theater for grabbing this photo for us.

Also want to keep reminding you about the Crutchfield Electronics Recycling truck that will be at the RVCC a week from this coming Saturday on September 6th from 9 AM to 3 PM. That’s the same day as the pancake breakfast. For this one day only, Crutchfield is waiving the normal small fee for you to get rid of most any electronics. Nelson County Life, The RVCC & Crutchfield have all teamed up to bring the truck to Nelson for this one special day. They tell me pretty much anything with a corded plug qualifies! Click on the Crutchfield image on the upper left of your screen under the cover photo to learn more.

Can you believe we’re actually talking about rain for several days? Last night light rain began creeping into portions of the area, and today we should begin to see a nice soaking rain, the first in a couple months. Highs Tuesday never made it out of the 70’s in the valley and the 60’s on the mountains. That’s roughly 20 degrees cooler than Monday!

The rain won’t wipe out all of the dry weather we’ve had lately, but it will certainly put a dent in it. A frontal boundary teams up what’s left of TS Fay to provide us with some widespread rainfall across most of Virginia except for the far northern portions.

Because of the clouds and rain, look for very fall feeling temps again today with highs only in the mid & upper 60’s valley and around 65° on the mountains.

Some rain continues into early Labor Day weekend on Saturday, with gradually improving conditions by Saturday afternoon. The second half of the holiday look sunny & nice for now with pleasant temps in the low 80’s.
