  1. Here's a definition for plains from Dictionary.com.

    "An extensive, relatively level area of land. Plains are present on all continents except Antarctica and are most often located in the interior regions. Because they can occur at almost any altitude or latitude, plains can be humid and forested, semiarid and grass-covered, or arid."

    The key word there is "extensive." West Virginia is mostly mountainous, and the main flat areas are areas adjacent to rivers.
