Crisp morning in Shenandoah Valley

It's 39 degrees this morning in western Augusta County in the Shenandoah Valley, the first morning this fall that we've dipped into the 30s. The cool temps will help the leaf color move along even though color change can already be seen on the mountain ridges and is spotty in the Valley. I'll bet campers on the Skyline Drive will have campfires roaring this morning as they wake to teeth-chattering cold.

Supposed to be another beautiful Valley day with highs in the 60s and sunny. There's lots going on in the area including the Frontier Culture Museum's Octoberfest from noon until 8 pm, a car show in Waynesboro, the Dayton Farmers Market, and a home school alumnus is getting married today. Congratulations, Brigitte!

It's also going to be a beautiful day for Rep. Eric Cantor's Republican Round-Up in Richmond from 3-6 pm at Innsbrook. It's a free family event with live music, entertainment for the kids, BBQ and the fixings from Brock's, and mingling with our Republican elected officials. I have a post about this event at the Washington Examiner.

It's also SWAC Daughter's birthday weekend as well as that of another home school alumnus. They are both fine young ladies so wishing them the best as they celebrate!

It's autumn in the Shenandoah Valley....
