Tales from the Road
Just a few extra thoughts from this week's adventures as a reporter...
A photographer and I went to Susquehanna County early Monday morning, to cover a triple fatal crash. On the way, and not far from our destination, I had to get out of the truck for a moment. I looked skyward, and was startled. It was foggy on the ground, but crystal clear above. You don't realize how much light pollution there is here down in the valley, until you get out in the country. I can't remember seeing that many stars and planets. Spectacular doesn't begin to describe it. Unfortunately, I could have used some light. It was so dark, I didn't see that enormous puddle. There's nothing like stepping in to shin deep cold water at 4:30 AM.
