Good day to cut pond ice


Dan Vashlishan of Tannersville, Pa., and Sam Conklin of Hamlin, Pa., run the ice-cutting machine from behind a cloud of icy spray thrown up by the blade during the Tobyhanna Ice Harvesting Festival at Millpond #1 on Saturday, Jan. 16, 2010. The annual event commemorates the era when ice harvesting was a big business in Northeastern Pennsylvania, an era that faded after electric refrigerators became more common in the 1930s and beyond.
