This old-fashioned winter is subjecting citizens of Penn Forest Township to severe rigors. In the first place, traffic is practically at a stand still due to drifted highways from a blizzard that occurred nearly a week ago. The storm dumped nearly two-feet of snow and was followed by high winds and bitter cold temperatures. All public schools have been closed for a week. Most of the farmers' homes are marooned. The Highway Department said it is doing everything possible to relieve the situation.
