‘Frozen’ River Not to Be Trusted


Tunk Bridge

It has been years since the landscape around Susquehanna River bridge at Tunkhannock has appeared this wintry. The river looks to be frozen solid but is in fact simply jammed with ice that flowed to this point during last week’s brief thaw and got stuck. Heavy snow then blanketed the temporarily suspended ice flow. From the bridge, numerous openings in the ice can be seen. Only a fool would venture out onto this treacherous shelf. With temperatures to remain below freezing for at least another week and more snow in the offing, there’s plenty of time for you to add a shot like this to your own photo memories of the harsh winter of 2013-14.


About Author

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.
