Cakes of ice are still flowing freely under the Veterans Memorial Bridge at Towanda on Thursday. Will it stay cold long enough for the Susquehanna River to freeze over like it did last year? According to, Monday is the only day between now and next Wednesday that the day time high might get higher than 32 degrees, increasing the chances of the ice collecting and forming contiguous masses. Recreationists are reminded that what may appear to be solid ice can actually be quite dangerous. Lifelong cold weather anglers know where the slower backwaters and eddies form legitimate ice shelves that can be fished more safely. 


About Author

Managing Editor of, 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.
