Hints of Winter are On the Winds


Skies were cloudy over Dushore in Sullivan County and the winds were still blowing as Thursday evening’s vigorous storm system was pulling away, as seen looking up the Doc Shoemaker Highway. The stretch of Route 220 from its intersection with Rt 87 to the Bradford County line was dedicated in a ceremony held in Dushore Friday morning.

Thursday’s near record high of 70 degrees at Meshoppen was a harbinger of big changes to come. Heavy storms moved through the region Thursday evening, disrupting power and felling trees across roadways.

The coldest air of the season will follow, with overnight temps at or below freezing for most of the coming week. Next weekend is forecast to feel like winter with daytime highs in the 30s and a chance of snow.

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
