It was something I hadn't done in more than a year-- report live on a snow storm. This is a screen grab from Monday morning.
I was live outside our newsroom on Public Square in downtown Wilkes-Barre. I am very fond of using that facility early in the newsroom. It offers a place to get warm between live shots. The chairs are more comfortable than sitting in the car, and it has a bathroom.
At least in the valley cities, it wasn't much of a snow event-- only a few slushy inches. However, the wind really was a factor for a while. A banner flew off the storefront of our new neighbor, a cannabis shop called 3 Buds. Photographer Erich Granahan retrieved it as it took off down the block, and I used it to illustrate the power of the wind.
You can also see my thermometer, bungeed to a pole, at the right. The temperature was warming up, and it was a visual aid. There are no bank thermometers on the square.
It was nice to get out of the office for a little while, even if I had to stand in the middle of a winter storm.
