    A Sub-Zero Morning

    Just being outside for a few minutes is painful in this kind of weather. A cold morning was even colder for some workers fixing a broken water main along Arnold Avenue in Scranton’s east mountain section. The workers were too busy to talk. Their boss showed his admiration. “It’s days like this you’d like to have a field job,” said Bob Mullery. “Hats off to those guys right behind me there.” Nay Aug Park in Scranton is usually a busy […]

This may be the wrong time to bring her out.” A Burger King parking lot in Mount Pocono was a crunchy coated mess. Axel Barongan arrived from Philadelphia where he […]

    Snow On Public Square

    WILKES-BARRE — There was so much snow in downtown Wilkes-Barre, they used a pickup truck and a plow to clean the sidewalk and, on another part of the square, a street sweeper did the trick. Consider Mike Klima’s morning. He drove in the snow from Hawley to pick up a delivery truck in the Wyoming Valley, to take supplies to a donut shop. Driving the truck was hard enough, and maneuvering the hand truck was no picnic. “It’s not easy […]

    WILKES-BARRE — Snow was falling early Monday morning, but turned to ice and freezing rain in parts of our area.

    Snow Slows Morning Drive

    SUGARLOAF TOWNSHIP — Snow overnight delayed some schools and made for a slow drive to work. On Interstate 81 just outside Hazleton, road crews have gotten rid of the snow. Cars and trucks aren’t having any problems getting by Monday morning, even though just a few inches of snow fell overnight. It did make for a difficult morning of travel. The trip for one driver didn’t go as planned. An SUV slid off Interstate 81 north near Hazleton. Traffic crawled […]

    STROUDSBURG — It was the question of the morning: how are the roads? The Stroudsburg area got hit with it all early Monday, a short burst of snow, followed by sleet, rain, and freezing rain.
