Hills vs. Mountains

It feels like the first of October.  It’s a crisp 55 degrees, nestled into the mountains of West Virginia.  I believe it is Hurricane Joaquin that has brought on all this rain.

I had to! You’re welcome!

I live in the northern part of WV; and, the locals will tell you that these aren’t mountains, these are hills.  I just moved down here from Northeast Ohio.  So to me, a hill is something I lay on; and, I look up towards the clouds in amazement.  A hill is something I sled down in the winter.  These are mountains.  They have roads that make you feel like you’re cruising on a roller coaster.  The ups and downs, the whips and weaves.  Most of the riders drive fast; because, they know the land.  Me, I’m like, I don’t know what’s around that bend?  Oh!  Look, it’s a drop off, below you lay the woods!  That is not a hill!  You can’t convince me otherwise.

Border – Drive by on the Ohio side; across the river, West Virginia.

If these aren’t mountains, then one day I’ll surely have to visit some mountains!

I’m impatiently waiting on a Skype chat with my boyfriend.  I’m thankful I managed to finish this post in time; because, there goes that sweet text message to say he’s on.  Fall is going to be tough to go through without him near me.
