Photo from Virginia Tech

The storm caused a lot of trouble from closed roads to power outages (my power).

Virginia Tech police posted this photo.

 "Even Chief Foust got in the act yesterday during the monsoon by helping a little turtle cross the road near the Duck Pond.  We hope he didn't get washed away when the Duck Pond flooded!  (The turtle, not the Chief!  The Chief is fine!)"

Burkes Garden, Tazewell County

This flight is getting low enough that we could see Burkes Garden.  Behind the mountain behind the snaky river, is a valley completely surrounded by the mountain.  It is known as God's Thumbprint.

Marching Virginians getting ready

Between the clouds and the grass and the black line of the fence, are the Marching Virginians, the musicians who will play at the football game Monday night.  The group was rehearsing this afternoon and I could hear and see them from the Huckleberry Trail.  The group also has this rehearsal facility this year for the first time.
