What's it like to live in the mountains of West Virginia?
Good question! My grandmother is originally from there. There is a family reunion every year but I haven't been able to go. I visited once when I was a child so I don't remember all that much. I hear it's beautiful! I had connected with a bunch of people on FB from there and they showed amazing pictures. My grandmother's family were from the coal miners generation. She grew up dirt poor and told me a story every Christmas about a coal train driving through town that would throw apples and oranges to the barefoot children chasing after it on Christmas morning.
It is a very beautiful state. My husband and I visited a friend in Summersville, WV about 2 weeks ago. He talked about a lot of the people in WV being unemployed but unfortunately that is true in most of our country. He has lived there all of his life and loves it.
