Since I first started this Blog, I have learned some amazing things about the “small” State of West Virginia. Unfortunate (but true), West Virginia is one of the poorest states in the US as well as having one of the highest rates of obesity. It is also home to the worst Mining Disaster in US History.

But what I bet you did not know, FATHER’S DAY and MOTHER’S DAY both originated in West Virginia. West Virginia is also home to the first REDNECKS. Search the blog for articles on these 3 facts.

Since arriving in Shepherdstown, a city older than our country and a location famous for its role in the Civil War, Steam Locomotives, the oldest train station in America, nearby Antietam Battlefield, where the Shenandoah River feeds into the Potomac Rivers, the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains, and famous Appalaichian Trail, I have learned much about Shepherdstown, the State of West Virginia and many other quirks about the region.

The posts on this blog are always tied into the region either directly from events taking place here to potential weather fronts heading in our direction. On occassion I also post things that in someway or another have an impact on Shepherdstown or areas within driving range.

Please comment when you can and feel free to add posts if you feel inclined.

Thanks for reading
