WEST VIRGINIA SKI AREAS MAY SEE A FOOT OF SNOW!

There’s snow everywhere in the forecast for today. The only questions is…how much? And when will it finally arrive? Today will be one of those days where you hurry up and wait. It’s like waiting at the window waiting to be picked up for your first date. You know they’re coming, and you’re giddy with anticipation, but they just can’t seem to get there fast enough, and then you start to wonder if they’re even going to show up at all, and then finally…they arrive, and all that worrying was for nothing!! So today, just be patient!!
