Well. More storms across the Valley… I was driving home from a friend’s house at about 7 PM, and got caught in a monster storm. The rain was so heavy drivers were pulling off the road and waiting it out since visibility was at about zero.
Anyway, three of the five games were washed out.
- Covington at Front Royal PPD
- New Market at Strasburg PPD
- Winchester at Charlottesville PPD
- Waynesboro 6, Staunton 2
- Harrisonburg 5, Purcellville 4
