Sun Can’t Penetrate Meshoppen’s Frigid Landscape

The waterfall on Meshoppen Creek, as it flows into the borough of Meshoppen, appeared to be frozen in time this afternoon (Jan. 29). The stream continues to run under the thickening ice, of course, and might rise a bit this weekend with a spate of slightly milder weather on tap and a chance for rain showers on Saturday. Temperatures are expected to trend downward again after the weekend, however, with single-digit lows returning by next Wednesday evening, Feb. 5. Meshoppen reached a high of 18 degrees at 12:45 pm today, and temperatures are expected to bottom out between 5 and 10 degrees above zero overnight.


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.
