I checked Goggle Earth.
Its only 386 miles from St Albans to Toronto. But then again nothing in WVa can be gotten to in a straight line.
Its Ok for me to say this: my mother is from Morgantown and I went to Wheeling College.
I love W Va.
There's an old, old joke about a farmer and fellow rolling a flat tire. I'll paraphrase it here:
Fellow with flat tire: How far is it to Toronto and the Pitko Gallery?
Farmer: About 386 miles as the crow flies.
Fellow with flat tire: Well just suppose for a minute that the crow had to walk and roll a flat tire?
Farmer: Well, in that case, it's a bit closer to 562.6 miles. Gotta go around that lake you know.
You are right about WV though, you just can't get there from here. Doesn't make much difference where there is either.
Thanks for the comeback.
