Where in New England can I take my dad camping to see the Perseids?

When I was very young, my dad took me camping to see the Perseid meteors; it was one of the defining experiences of my life. Now I am grown and he is nearly old, and I would like to turn it around. Help me find a suitable mountaintop in New England to go camping with my dad; somewhere where we won't have to see anyone else. Details within. [more inside]

Are there warm apartments in cold climates?

I live in the SF Bay area and I'm thinking about moving to colder climates at some point, but for various reasons I can't handle a cold ambient temperature inside my home, even if I bundle up. In colder areas (specifically New England and the Midwest), how easy/possible is it to find apartments that are well-heated (perhaps buildings with a whole-building radiator system?) or other situations where I can have a warm (68-70 degree) home without paying through the nose for utilities?

Tips for Visiting a Robert Frost Landmark?

I'm interested in visiting a Frost Landmark in September as part of a road trip to Northern New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts in September. But there are so many to choose from!

Tips for learning birdsongs?

The birds are back in town, and I wake up early enough to hear their songs before the traffic drowns them out. I'm no birder--I don't think I can identify any bird by its call, and only the five most "identifiable" birds by sight (and I'm probably wrong). What apps (iOS) and websites do you recommend to learn bird songs? [more inside]

Roast Beef & Pizza. Pizza & Roast Beef. Why?

We moved to Massachusetts from upstate NY last year and this has been nagging at me ever since: Why are most of the pizza shops here pizza & roast beef shops? Roast beef is not paired with pizza in my mind. The roast beef isn't usually a pizza topping, and some of them don't really even seem to serve roast beef as a specialty (just one of many normal sub options). Can anyone offer an origin story?

Has Spring Sprung Late?

Has Spring sprung late? Where can I find data on variations from year to year as to the "starting dates" of certain regional climactic marker events--e.g., leaves fall off the trees; lilacs blooming; first frost? [Particularly looking for data arranged in a visually easy-to-digest way. Also, particularly New England; I ask because Spring in my area feels like it's been slow to come this year, and I don't know if it's just because the weather has been gray that I'm fooling myself, or if the leaves really did pop out later than usual.]
