Water main break buries neighborhood in ice

- A Pennsylvania neighborhood looks like a winter wonderland, but residents say the conditions are anything but delightful.

East Market Street in Scranton was covered in ice Thursday because of a large water main break.  Power lines, stop signs, fences, houses -- nearly everything in sight was covered with a thick layer of ice.

Crews were eventually able to get the water turned off and make the necessary repairs to the water line.  It may be a few days before things thaw out, though -- temperatures are predicted to remain well below freezing, with lows below zero.
