Does anyone on this site have any personal experience in that area of our great nation? I have never been there, but it looks beautiful! It's the home of Indiana Univeristy of PA, Jimmy Stewart, and the It's a Wonderful Life Festival, and it's also the Christmas tree capitol of the world. It's nestled between the Allegheny Mountains yet only an hour away from Pittsburg. July's average temp is 83, and the yearly average temp is 62. There is a chance of snow EVERY Christmas, and every Thanksgiving is cold. They have 4 seasons, not two. There are many state parks around the area, which offers hiking, camping, fishing, and boating. And in an Awesome Christmas song, it is implied that there is always homemade pumpkin pie!
I have never loved the south and have always felt misplaced. I think I am simply ready for a change. Whay say you?

It's beautiful country and the people in western PA are some of the friendliest I've ever encountered. I lived outside Pittsburgh for several years and traveled extensively in the area. BTW, the city of Pittsburgh is one of the best-kept secrets in the country, not at all the grimy industrial place people often think of.

BIL lived up there. He moved back down here, said the sky clouded up in November, and cleared up in April. Also got tired of clearing snow from his sidewalks which is the law that you must. If your car is parked outside of a garage you'll have to chip the ice from it before you go anywhere, and if its cold and rainy enough you'll have to chip the ice that unites your tires with the driveway. But other then that it's nice.
