More things I miss about NEPA....

- Going to Wal-mart at 2 am. There is no such thing as an all-night Wal-Mart in North Jersey (I've also been unable to find an all-night grocery store in my area.)

- Driving just to drive, with the exception of really snowy days, you can pretty much just drive for the fun of it in NEPA, I didn't realize until I moved to a major metro that you can't just drive without having to deal with traffic, etc.

- Potato pancakes and pierogi, I still have not found anything like that out here.

- Parade Day, nothing tops Parade Day in Scranton. Parades elsewhere, well, they just don't measure up.

- Manning's ice cream. Especially now that it's summer, you have no clue how much I miss this stuff. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

- The complete and total lack of crime. With the exception of a few "bad neighborhoods" in Scranton, most of NEPA is completely and utterly safe. Even the South Side and the Hill section pale in comparison to Newark. (Don't get me started on Irvington *shudder*)

- How cheap everything is - I miss going out and being able to get wasted on less than $10. Where I live now that can buy one drink. Oh and don't get me started on real estate and rents.
