The weather is like the rest of Virginia warm in the late spring, hot in the summer, warm early fall, and then freezing all winter.

I used to work at a local restaurant and loved it, I still go back to get the food all the time. Most of the places to eat are closed by 9 but offer great dinners.
I have grown up here and would gladly move back.
