Winter of 2007 - Susquehanna River freezes over

I have written previously that the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh was "frozen over" last week, with commercial traffic stopped for the first time in a decade.

Here are pictures of another river that has frozen over as a result of the bitter temperatures this month. The white area in the photos below is not an empty snow covered field, nor is it whitewater rapids. The white area is the frozen Susquehanna River near Harrisburg, PA.

Susquehanna River - Sunday - February 11, 2007


Western half of the river - the eastern half is on the other side of the island near the middle of the photo

All of these photos were taken on February 11, 2007.

another photo of the Western half -

The broken bridge in the middle of the photo was destroyed by floating ice chunks during the Winter of 1996 - not to be confused with the Winter of 1994.

another photo of the broken Walnut Street bridge taken the same day - 2-11-07

It would be nice to have a catalogue of all of the rivers that froze over during the past ten days. But the MSM/DNC does not keep track of such things, as that would not support their story of "global warming."

The Susquehanna freezes over more often than the Allegheny, so it is not an earth shattering event. But in this era of "global warming" I am shocked that it freezes at all.
