Can You Say “Youghiogheny”? (#180)

Ahhh!  Pennsylvania at last!

Today, the sun shines.  The snowstorm has passed.  I can pack up the Tin Can Cottage and head for the Poconos.

Arriving just ahead of the storm on Sunday I found a campground near the Youghiogheny  River (pronounced: Yok a Gay Nee).  Folks here just call it the Yough (Yok) which is a good thing.  I wonder if they ever had this as a word for a spelling bee?

The river is famous for the rapids that extreme kayakers like to navigate for thrills and chills.  It actually flows north out of West Virginia and Maryland into Pennsylvania.

Okay, enough trivia!

Results of the snowstorm that kept me camped along the Yough for two days.  What a great welcome home!

My "Welcome Home" Snowstorm

See you on down the road!

Love,   Annie

    You knew for sure you were home with the PA snow. We only had one in PA this year and that was in October. Not that I missed having it! Like the picture though.

    Actually…yes, I can say it. I used to live in Pittsburgh and learned to pronounce it. The spelling does look intimidating.
