Nasty York County, Pa., weather brings 10 bright news coverage moments

onhighThis is one of a host of photographs made by York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News photogs in recent storms. This one, by Sonya Paclob, shows a snow-cover York City from on high, say seven stories up at the Yorktowne Hotel. Why not the Yorktowne’s roof, a favorite perch for photographers over the years? It was off limits for now. It hadn’t been shoveled. This is being used as a cover photo on the YDR’s Facebook page. Also of interest: This recent weather has been nasty, but what’s new?
