I am curious on a couple of things.

1) Is this area nice, pretty, and rural or has part or most of it become "Loudonized" engulfed in a sea of suburban sprawl?
I remember Harper Ferry used to be the rural beauty of the area, I remeber Martinsbug was way out there, and on a recent drive on rt 50 past Winchest it seemed QUITE rural.
I wanted individually are these counties rural, is the quality of life short term and long term in jeopardy, will the politicans get in under control, and where does the safe rural line begin?

2) My next question, who does the NE panhandle align with sports team and city wise. WV as a whole seems closer in mileage and culturally to Pittsburg or Ohio than Baltimore or Washingon, yet this panhandle is closer by the mile to those areas.
I wanted to know which teams or stations you get, which games you get, and if the Steelers, Pirates, and Pens have more of a prescene or any relative to the Skins, Ravens, Oriols, Nats, Caps.

Thanks.

jefferson and berkeley are becoming loudonized,morgan and hampshire are still pretty rural.i think that due to commuting times morgan and hampshire will stay pretty much that way though some building is going on there too.

Is Jefferson and Berkeley still rural, just with some development?
Or is it full blown massive developement that in 10-15 years if not sooner will overtake the rural character?

How deep into Jefferson and Berkeley county is this going on, because both and especially Berkeley are nowhere near DC or Tysons, were do these people work and how can they commute over 2 hours each way?

Also, do you guys get DC/BAL stations and TV channels or PIT or both?

Which teams do people tend to root for there, PIT?
