Many stretches of the Susquehanna River through the Endless Mountains are chock-full of ice. At Tunkhannock, ice stretches from one bank to the other, though it is noticeably thinner in the middle. Weekend temperatures will do little to change that, but three or four days above freezing next week may break it up.
