About the header image: January 29, 2014

Northeastern Pennsylvania, like much of North America (but not most other parts of the Northern Hemisphere) is still in the icy grip of the dreaded Polar Vortex. Even though days are getting longer and the sun is gradually creeping up in the sky, days can easily become gray and gloomy under cloudy skies. (Ironically, the clouds tend to trap heat from the sun, so cloudy days can be less bone-shatteringly cold than clear and cloudless days!) NEPA Blogs co-administrator Gort has captured the gloom in this picture of houses near the park by the Polish Club in Hudson. Even the relatively fresh snow doesn't brighten the scene much! Who's ready for Spring to be here already?

If you have an image of life in and around NEPA, we'd like to run it as the NEPA Blogs header. Send it to us at!
