Nelson County, Virginia

The weekend across Nelson was full of things to do. Above at The Rockfish Valley Volunteer Fire Department, there was the annual Christmas Arts and Crafts show. Just in time for the holiday season!

Plenty of arts and crafts awaited folks coming through the Christmas Arts and Crafts Show.

Just down the road at The Hamner Theater in the RVCC, our favorites, Jeff Vogelgesang & Jan Smith played to a sold out crowd. Not surprised, these guys are fantastic!

And on down the road, they are days from throwing the doors open at Devils Backbone Brewing Company in Beech Grove / Roseland. In the photo above some of the first beer brewed is ready. We hear they will be opening in just a few days!

Finishing touches are being put on the DBBC which is scheduled to open in just a few days.

    26 degrees up here by my thermometer this morning. I think winter is on the way.

    I know that most of you will yell and scream at me for saying this, but for those of us who love to ski (and ride) as much as I do, bring on the cold weather!

    There is nothing like skiing down a hill (in control of course!) feeling the wind on your face and carving turns in the snow. What an endorfin hit!

    Best regards,
    Paul
