Portable generator or whole house?

REGION — Most people living in the region have lost power in their homes a time or two, and because of the March 2 blizzard, many homes were without power for days. Not surprisingly, lots of residents are considering preparing against the next bout of nature-imposed darkness by shopping for a generator.

Ice on the river

REGION — There has been a bumper crop of ice on the river this year.  The frigid weather at the end of December and early January caused it to form and warmer weather caused it to break up and move.  Here in the Big Eddy, massive blocks of ice were piled atop one another, while other parts of the river are clear.

Ice out, ice back

REGION — A brutal cold snap brought thick ice to the lakes and rivers in the Upper Delaware Valley, then a warm spell lead to an early ice out. The ice flowed down the river and jammed up in Bucks County, leading to numerous flood warnings in that area.

Winter weather affects animals too

Winter in our region can be quite unpredictable. Sometimes we experience extremely cold temperatures, as we did this past week; while at other times during our winter months, we can have temperatures in the 50s or 60s. It is extremely important to be aware of the rapid and harsh weather changes, as they affect animals too.

The cold weather has led to freezing of much of the Upper Delaware River, including most of the Bid Eddy at Narrowsburg, NY.

Brutal cold, frozen river

REGION — The old year ended and the new one began with a blast of Arctic air covering the region and much of the eastern part of the country. Another blast of cold air is expected to descend on the region into Friday morning.
