Thanks to John Holman for the photos : A CVEC bucket truck and lineman work to get power back on along Camping Ridge Rd in Stoney Creek – Monday morning – October 30, 2017. High winds Sunday night knocked out power to many locations.

Nelson County, Virginia

As we told you overnight Sunday, high winds cause numerous power outages across the area both in Nelson (where we are located) and across the Central Virginia Blue Ridge.

Our BRL WeatherNow network clocked the highest wind gust of 55 MPH at our BRL Ski Barn location on Sunday night. We’ve seen a gust of 50 MPH on Monday morning as well.

Around 2:30 Monday morning our BRL-Ski Barn location at the intersection of Route 664 and 151 recorded a wind gust of 50 MPH. The night before it peaked at 55 MPH.
