Bad pun, I know, but it really does describe the reader-submitted photos we have here on at the Daily Item.
They show how people are trying to enjoy this tremendous amount of snow we’ve seen this year. I mean, make the best of a bad situation, right?
And…..we’re getting more snow early next week, so expect more snow pictures!

This morning, I was stopped at a stoplight on my way to work and I looked at the car ahead of me – and I laughed.
Let’s see if you also see it:
The car is smiling – the snow on its bumper is, at least.
It was just a little pick-me-up on yet another freaking day when we woke up to snow (when is summer again?!)
Enjoy your day, all!
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.
For your holiday/winter viewing pleasure, here are some more photos of the Watson Inn holiday painted windows while artist Mike Heller was working on them.
They depict a traditional winter scene, complete with snowmen, carriage and snow tubers.
I haven’t been by to see the completed windows – have you? How do they look?
The past several days, the Valley has woken up to some incredibly thick fog.
I’m half expecting flesh-eating monsters to crawl out from the depths of it as I drive to work.
Here’s some photos I took- email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with yours!:
If I have one complaint about winter it’s the snow. The stuff that turns the streets of Central PA into a nightmare for drivers and ruins your new pants and shoe.
[Note, "snow" is not to be confused with my sister's adorable cockapoo, "Snowball."]
And it looks like we’re already into snow season – oh joy.
But if there’s one thing I do love about snow – it’s that it makes for some cute pictures.
There’s nothing better than taking pictures in front of a snowy field all bundled up or more beautiful than seeing a barn and farm covered under a layer of white.
I’ll definitely be posting my favorite snow scenes from around the Valley here – and please send me your snow photos – I’ll post them here so we can compare vantage points.
So bundle up and break out the smartphone – winter has arrived in Pennsylvania!
