The bizzare thing about it all is 571/703 main influence was west coast style..........For some reason.....except PW county which people leaned more towards atlanta's style.....540, 434, and 804 leaned southern, 757= New York, how? why? when your how close to North Cackalakey, just doesnt make sense.....Im talking 10 years ago, I dont know what everyone is into nowa days...Plus that whole NY thing, I mean even cities out in the mid-west were of NY style bad in the 80's its not that out there to see the style shft south to richmond, we are on the same coastline allot of people move from NY to VA.

Mid-Atlantic is a recent designation that also includes Northeast states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Culturally I have heard the real Virginia, excluding NOVA, is Southern. I don't see how anyone can deny that Virginia is a Southern state when Richmond was the capital of the old Confederacy.

Yeah, I was always used to Virginia being a southern state, I consider myself a southerner, the state has usually been referred to as a southern state, but now and days it's starting to get more and more confusing Here is a couple of examples why.

"Standard Federal Regions"



Region I: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont
Region II: New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands
Region III: Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia : THIS IS THE MID-ATLANTIC REGION.
Region IV: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee
Region V: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin
Region VI: Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma
Region VII: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska
Region VIII: Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming
Region IX: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada (American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands)
Region X: Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington

The you have the

The EPA-- "Region 3: The Mid-Atlantic Region, Serving Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia".



The you have other things.......like trees......

They consider Virginia in the Mid-Atlantic region because of several species of oak, birch, maple, and hickory, that are found in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.

Personally I have more in common with people from Kentucky or West Virginia....But allot of people through out the state have allot in common with allot of people up north as well. Yes, the United Census calls VA a southern state, but everywhere else is starting to refer to the state as the Mid-Atlantic. I think AAA started this trend.....

And really it's almost like the South is a club anymore, it doesnít make much sense. Out of all the defined historical confederate states, Virginia is the most advanced, one of the wealthiest, and one of the fastest growing states. North Carolina is on par with Virginia, im already hearing NC being called a Mid-Atlantic state. So what you have money, advance in technology, jobs, everything and you what? Get kicked out of the southern states? I don't like to admit this but it's true, once in Lewisburg Tennessee a friendís family member called me a Yankee and im from where 2 confederate capitals were held? (I also felt like the smartest man alive in that area however ). Nobody ever seems to even think of Richmond or Danville when it comes to the whole civil war thing, people always seem to think of Charleston, Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans, Birmingham its never Virginia, s*it drives me nuts.

The climate is another thing that leans more southern, but throws me off because Virginia east of the Shenandoah Mountains has a humid subtropical climate. areas west of the Blue Ridge mountains have a humid continental temperature, and maritime temperature.

Then you have the "Federal Reserve" regions, which is even more confusing because they add not just North Carolina, but South Carolina, and rid of Pennsylvania.



Federal Reserve. Who is Federal Reserve? What is Federal Reserve? Where is Federal Reserve? Definition of Federal Reserve. Meaning of Federal Reserve.

You can prob tell ive though allot about this lol

I used to live on the West Coast and there is nothing unified about it, its just that people don't really care. Technically they are all in one Census region and it has always been that way, so even if they were unified they would not be a fair comparison.

Tennessee= 1 to 1 and a half, New York=8-9 hours. Thats a big difference in my opinion, from where I live.
