It's 2 p.m. as icicles form on our deck railing in Augusta County and the temperature hovers between 30-32 degrees. It's cold, dreary, and the rain is picking up with a bit more icing showing up on tree limbs. Weather forecasts say we should have heavy rain later this evening so hopefully the icing will not continue or else we will have power outages. Wintergreen Resort has announced it will close at 4:30 due to the messy inclement weather.
Looking out the window from my desk at the fog settling in as the rain continues. Careful traveling out there. On days like this, Afton Mountain is usually socked in with fog.
