By mid October, West, by God, Virginia, is a visual delight. The trees are orange and yellow and red. The mountains are gorgeous. I love this time of year here, but you just never know what the temperature might be. It's generally chilly in the morning, but warmer in the day. Or, it could be very rainy and cold all month long.
It's a crapshoot, really. After a few years, we all just get used to it.
The best thing is when I can look out my picture window and see my mountains across the river. Clouds drifting by or sometimes, a beautiful sunny sky. It really is almost Heaven.
Ask me again in January, when we're ass deep in snow and ice. Then, I don't feel too cozy about the state. LOL.
If ya wanna visit, you should! This is the perfect time! :-)
