Winter In Pennsylvania
Think we started something here.
First, Joe McNally posted about Winter In New York.
Then, after a decent snowstorm last week, I followed his post up with Winter in New Jersey.
Now, this week….Winter in Pennsylvania.
I’m back up in Northeast PA as my Dad had to go back into the hospital on Monday for some follow-up surgery. (follow up his open-heart surgery back in October).
He’s doing well, hopefully coming home tomorrow. I came up to help out my Mom. Mom’s got a lot of help this week, though, as my sister and her young daughter are visiting from Edmonton too.
I’ve kind of forgotten what it’s like to be up here in the Wyoming Valley in winter. I came up late Sunday, and after passing through the Lehigh Valley Tunnel on the PA Turnpike, I had to grab that shot of the frozen Lehigh River that opens this post.
It then snowed overnight and early Monday, I was shoveling about 3-4 inches off the driveway I used to shovel all the time as a kid. Might be going on 30 years since I last shoveled it.
Township snow plows can through and shoved all the snow to the sides. The main roads are cleared to the asphalt below, but the sides are snow packed. After visiting my Dad last evening, I decided to drive around Wilke-Barre to do some snowy night photography. Or some night snow photography.
Up here for another day or so. Weatherman is calling for another 1-3 inches tonight. I’ll be shoveling that driveway again, I guess.
