Mr. Walton attended Randolph-Macon Academy, Front Royal and Randolph-Macon College, Ashland. He served in the US Army for three years. He attended law school at the University of Virginia and worked for 25 years with the law firm of Donovan Leisure Newton & Irvine.

    Glen Allen - from Lowell Koontz: " June was the wettest June on record at the Glen Allen station. The 8.35 inches monthly precipitation was a departure of +4.96 inches. The mean temperature of 76.5F was a +0.2F departure. Glen Allen had 16 days in June with measurable precipitation which tied for the record and no other months have had more. The Glen Allen station has had 2.30 inches more rain this month than the Richmond International Airport. Glen Allen had 4 days that had at least one inch of rain which is a record for June and none of the months have any more. Thunderstorms have caused varying rainfall amounts over the region. Thunder was heard on eight days during June. The thunderstorm of June 25th was a severe electrical storm that gave 2 close strikes near our house that threw one circuit breaker and it could be a coincidence but one computers hard drive failed the same night. June was the third cloudiest since 2009. This fact helped that June had the highest relative humidity average for June caused the month to have the lowest temperature range on record at Glen Allen. The highest temperature for the month was 96F on the 16th and the lowest temperature was 57 on the 29th. The highest dew point temperature for June was 79.7F on the 16th which occurred after an afternoon shower following the hottest day of the month. The maximum wind for the month was 35 mph on the 30th from the SSW as a thunderstorm approached the station. This was the second highest high wind gust recorded for June. " - [ + + ]

The Richmond International Airport has had four (2008, 2010, 2011, 2015) of our 7 hottest Junes since 1897. It is also interesting that of the seven hottest Junes four have occurred since 2008.
