I do miss Western NY just a bit.
I always wanted a house with an attached barn. They are common in the east. I've spent too many days carrying heavy water pails through deep snow, often with a big pregnant belly. Checking on ready-to-kid goats in the middle of the night would have been so much more pleasant if a person didn't need to bundle up and go outside. I bet one couldn't even get a building permit to build such a thing anymore.
