Kane hasn’t seen the last of below-zero temperatures

February 20, 2015

There’s a reason Kane is called the “Ice Box of Pennsylvania.”
It’s cold in the winter.
But a National Weather Service meteorologist said Friday that the prolonged string of “below-zero” temperatures is “ridiculous—even for Kane.”
“You’ve been exceptionally cold for this time of the year,” Craig Evanego said in trying to explain the seemingly endless bitter sub-zero temperatures in the Kane area over the past month or so. Evanego is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in State College. Kane is part of this office’s coverage area.

Adventures of a Wildlife Photographer – "Screech"

February 20, 2015

Owls still fascinate me wherever my camera may take me. I will never get tired of searching for these varied birds of prey. What’s amazing about owls is the fact that they live among us, but are seldom seen. The park right across from my house has quite an owl population that few people ever get to see. There are great-horned owls, barred owls, and screech owls living only feet from people’s everyday life, and the average person may never see one.
