As much of the Sun Belt dries up, we may have to revise our tally of regional economic advantages.

For generations we’ve been told to flee the Northeast for some air-conditioned car-ported open-shop Elysium. Today, though, the Quabbin Reservoir is making me feel like an early-’70s Alaskan.

Please, though: no pipelines.
