The Western Allegheny plateau was the setting for my younger years. This is a glaciated zone and not a driftless area, in fact. Yesterday, the mighty musketeers of the Cuyahoga, the Cleveland Cavaliers, won the Eastern Conference title. It might not sound like much, but Cleveland's last major sports championship was in 1964. Any signs of life from a Cleveland franchise are to be wildly celebrated.
Also, no cicadas yet in Uptown.
