Another Snowy Afternoon

Yes, northeast Pennsylvania is currently experiencing another snowstorm. John and I decided to go to Wilkes-Barre to run a few errands and to grab some lunch.

The roads in Wilkes-Barre were a bit slippery.


I took this picture from the parking lot of the Wilkes-Barre Post Office on Main Street. The snow started to pick up around noon.

This is another picture taken from the lot of the Wilkes-Barre Post Office on Main Street.

If you're looking for the BEST hot dogs in Wilkes-Barre, a stop at Abe's Hot Dogs on South Main Street is a must. I'm not much of a hot dog lover, but there's something about Abe's hot dogs that will have you hooked with one bite. I ate one in the car, and then I had another one when I got home. I didn't have breakfast today, so two hot dogs won't kill me.

When you have an Abe's hot dog, you literally can't eat just one. The hot dogs are topped with a finely ground meat and mustard. The topping is unlike any other topping you'd find at a typical hot dog joint. It's not chili; it's better than chili.

This is the former Mary Stegmaier Mansion at 156 South Franklin Street in Wilkes-Barre. This building was the first home to Arts YOUniverse, which housed many artist studios before we moved to our new location on North Franklin Street. This building has such character. I miss my old studio, and I miss the ghost.


We're driving back to Kingston over the Market Street Bridge. There's a clump of snow on John's car. The streets in Kingston were more navigable than in Wilkes-Barre.


I love the tree-lined streets in Kingston.

When we got home, Julius was still out watching the birds. He didn't want to go in before we left. His heart was set on watching birds. 

The smart cookie that he is, he hunkers down on the side of the porch taking shelter from the storm. It looks like a snowflake must have fallen in his eye, or maybe he just blinked when I took this photograph.

Miss Liz I was eating Abe's hotdogs before you were born. When my son comes for a visit it's Abe's and Tommy's pizza. Now for the answer. Drum roll please. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band! Love the pics. Mary

The snow does make for a beautiful picture, but it is snowing like crazy here and I am so tired of it.. Your kitty is so darned sweet, beautiful.

Your pictures are so pretty. It was to windy down this way for the snow to lay on the branches. Hopefully this was winters last hoorah. Have fun in the snow!
