John Lloyd emailed us saying; “Wow! The rivers/creeks are the highest that I’ve seen — lived in Nelson since May 1998. If you could get some pictures of the creek beside Route 6 East (about 1/4 mile from Route 151) and the flood plain just south of Virginia Lane (by Tuckahoe Antique Mall). Never seen that much water in those places. Thanks for the great coverage, as usual.”
Editor’s note, those pics are coming up shortly! Thanks for the info John!
