I'm a little obsessed right now with where we might live, work, go to school, hike, camp, grocery shop, when we move to Western PA; and so whenever I see any article, news story, weather info, etc. about the haps in the area I must immediatly read it, watch it, ingest it, process it...

Maybe because it's a microcosmic version of the state of the nation, and I want to contribute to what can be, and not what was.
