A look into my daily life

While working on a story for work, I came across a slight dilemma: I know when referring to the Palouse, you’re on it… but when referring to the Columbia Basin, are you on it or in it?

I finally decided we live in the Columbia Basin while WSU is on the Palouse, though I’m still not 100 percent sure, because they’re both regions so wouldn’t you describe them sort of the same way?

Anyway, I was voicing my confusion to Pete when he offered this explanation: “The Palouse is an outtie and the Basin is an innie.”
