Last night and through this morning it stormed something fierce here in the Valley – and despite the sunshine currently outside our windows, it’s supposed to get rainy again this afternoon.
The entire nation has been under a severe weather alert for the last two days with a “Derecho” taking hold.
The best place to see everyone’s storm photos? Twitter, obviously.
Here’s some of the best from the East Coast, which is currently under the thumb of the storm.

Last night some terrible storms passed through the area – and the sky was really dark and stormy.
It made for some good photos of the sky churning just before the deluge of rain hit. I think the fact that it was already getting dark out mixed with the darkness of the storm really caused the sky to get a menacing, dark look to it.
Here’s the view from my house:
And just in case you think I’m the only one crazy enough to do something like this – I’m not.
A lot of people reveled in the beauty of the sky, as evidenced by these photos:
Do you have pictures from last night? Send them to me!
Too often I think we’re quick to criticize PennDOT for not plowing quick enough or leaving roads untidy.
But in terms of preparing for yesterday’s storm that wasn’t, PennDOT was all over it.
Photographer Rob Inglis and I traveled I80 yesterday and saw de-icer ready to go all down the highway:
So kudos to them for being prepared, and thank God we didn’t see ant major storm activity.
Know someone who deserves a shout-out in the Valley? Let me know!

Here’s my attempt at some time lapse phtoography.
It shows the progression of the snow storm outside our office window on Market Street. I took photos beginning at 1 p.m. at about every half hour.
(Note: I had an early photo showing barely there snow, but accidentally deleted it – whoops!)
Anyway, enjoy -
and send me your snow photos!

It’s supposed to snow big here in the Valley today, so make sure to
send me your snow pictures – I’ll post them here!
As I’ve previously discussed, I’m not a huge fan of snow – but I’m excited to see what it looks like across the area when the two to four inches hits us this afternoon.
And apparently a lot of people in the area are big fans of snow:
Keep checking at
dailyitem.com for updates on snow conditions and any road closings, and I’ll let you know what I’m seeing out and about tomorrow.

In what I promise is my last Hurricane Sandy-related post, here are some photos I took while traveling out-and-about Tuesday to talk with some people about storm damage.
Did you have storm damage? Post about it in the comments!
A tree fell in at the Steel Steeds Motorcycle Campground along Route 405 in West Chillisquaque Township.

We spent most of the day Monday here at the Daily Item monitoring and reporting on the progression of Hurricane Sandy.
The storm wasn’t scheduled to peak in the Valley until later in the evening, but I saw some pretty amazing photos on Twitter from other places where Sandy was in full swing.
Below is a collection of some of the best photos from the day.
