Anyone see the Valley this morning?
September 16, 2009
The 8:30 web cam update is beautiful. Plenty of low lying fog with mountain tops poking through and clear skies above. I really wish I was there right now. Not to mention, it's only 47 degrees...
Somewhat off topic, but I was wondering how you get to the Valley from C-burg. I have only driven it a few times, but my recollection is that 50 west of Redhouse s*cks--or is at least hard to make time on.
50 to Redhouse is shorter but not too reliable. Especially when it is snowing. I take 79 down to 33 (Weston exit). Just go through Elkins and turn left to stay on 33. When 33 splits in harman you stay left on 32 and make it to the Valley in something like 12 miles.
I always go that way just because you spend the least time on 2 lane roads, thus avoiding slow trucks and poor road conditions.
Thats what I thought--I was thinking 33 to Harman or up to Parsons and over would be a more reasonable drive.
it's 30 mins faster going thru philippi and nestorville which brings you to st george and up sugarlands rd to 219 by the windmills near thomas. not the easiest to describe without a tucker county map tho but way faster.
Thats pretty much go through Philippi, turn left on 38 right past Philippi Inn and the Ford Dealership, stay there till you hit 92, follow 92 north through netserville and kasson, turn right on 50, turn right on 24 DIRECTLY past cathedral st park, and then turn right on 219 and straight down to thomas...
Nice drive too...
