I just realized that you are from Charleston. Have you always lived in West Virginia? I grew up in Grafton which is in north-central WV. It's half hour/45 minutes south of Morgantown. Man I miss the mountains! You're going to have to post some pictures of the landscape for me so that I can drool and be all homesick!
Pretty much, I was born here and my dad moved us to Fla. when I was 6 but we moved back when I was 12 so yeah most of my family is here and some out of state. It's so cool to find someone on here from around the same area. I will definitely try and get some snowy pics together for you LOL. Although, if you know about West Virginia weather then you know it can snow 2 feet one minute and be 70 degrees the next hehe. It snowed here all weekend and the high for tomorrow is 65...geesh, I would love to get a white christmas like back in 94'.
OMG! We had sooo much snow that year! And it was soo flippin' cold! My school was closed like the whole month of January, with the exception of 4 days and those were early-outs delayed starts or BOTH!
Did you all get hit by the blizzard in October of 2005 or was that just the northern part of the state? I had just started a long distance relationship with Matt (my DH) that year, literally just days before the storm hit, and we were without phone or power for about a week. He thought I hated him and was ignoring him. lol
Other than that the only other really big snow I can remember was in 2002 or 2003. And it was like January I think. We had a TON of snow, and I was having to drive Route 119 between Grafton and Morgantown daily. One of the worst roads in the world I think! lol
Yeah we definitely got that snow LOL...I remember we got two really big ones like 2 or 3 years in a row. I think I was in eighth or ninth grade when we got the first one and was declared a state of emergency. We were off of school for like 3 weeks in Jan and then another one hit in Feb and we were off for like another 2 weeks. It was ridiculous HEHE. I remember actually getting cabin fever and wanting to go back to school because I was so bored. We couldn't even go anywhere unless it was on four wheelers and everything was closed...even flippin go mart. You know things are bad when go mart is closed LOLOL!
No kidding! There were 2 in Grafton. I lived there from age 5 until 25, and in those 20 years, I saw them closed one time. Once was during the power outage in 2005 and the other was when someone robbed all 4 gas stations in town.
