At 10 AM weather.com said it was going to be mostly sunny with a high of 51
F for Afton VA. 
NOT!!!! no way was the temp that warm. The sky was 95% cloud cover. I
finally left at 1 PM when the sky became overcast with thick black clouds
coming in from the west with no chance of any more sun for a couple of
hours.
Our weather station located on Interstate 64 showed the wind out of the
SE. The wind was out of the NW by what I could feel on my face plus the
clouds were moving from the NW.
