Nelson County, Virginia
Heavy rains and thunderstorms moved through Nelson County and much of Central Virginia Thursday afternoon. The expectation of flooding was enough for Nelson County School officials to close schools for the day.
Victoria Gomez Mininger, captured these shots of flooding in eastern Nelson County Thursday afternoon. Victoria owns Blackberry Creek Photography and is now one of our photographers in the eastern section of Nelson. Go Tori!
Here at NCL in the Rockfish Valley, our weathernet gauge had recorded 1.86″ of rain for the period ending at 6:30PM.

For the month the reading at TWNF was 8.24″ as of Friday morning (3.11.11). Here at NCL the monthly total stands at 4.43″ as of Friday morning.
After a soggy couple of days, we dry out nicely for the upcoming weekend with sunny skies and temps in the 60’s!
