Don’t forget 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!

What a fantastic rainy day on Wednesday! As you can see in the photo above, rain fell most of the day and continued overnight last night.

Look for showers, possibly a rumble of thunder today as rain is again likely. Most people have already received well in excess of an inch of rain as of midnight last night, and we can expect more today with those cool pre fall temperatures again.

By Friday we’ll see some occasional sunshine mixed with showers and isolated thunderstorms.

Saturday has the chance for some scattered thundershowers early with improving conditions as the day wears on, the second half of the Labor Day weekend look mostly sunny and pleasant.
