Mother Nature fools us

It looks like a ghost town in downtown Lock Haven recently with all the closures due to the coronavirus. Not much vehicle traffic or foot traffic. Maybe that’s a good sign that local folks are heeding advice from the powers that be to stay home during this crisis. Let’s hope it helps.
