Courthouse Square Tree

One of the things I really like about Christmas is you can find beauty just about everywhere, including that soulless sea of concrete and granite called Lackawanna County Courthouse Square. This is the big tree on the North Washington Avenue side of the building.

Be aware of some parking issues in downtown Scranton. The city and state have done their usual stellar job of curb-to-curb snow plowing. The remnants of Friday's storm are now large and solid glaciers of dirty ice along the sides of the street. Good luck finding a safe and easy place to park. You might want to consider ditching the car in one of the city's garages if you're going to spend any time downtown.

In spite of it all, have a happy and safe Christmas Eve.
