LUCCA ORETO was palling around with his stepdad in the snow yesterday afternoon behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art when he pointed to an almost-black puddle in the road.
"That's not ice! That's not ice!" the sixth-grader repeated to Joe Silvasy. Then Lucca promptly stuck his leg in the slushy goo to prove he was right.
Laughs and guffaws ensued for Lucca and his family, all formerly of Tampa, Fla., and now residents of Fishtown. Lucca and his family, mom Kristel Oreto and sister Angel, had been sledding down the hill behind the museum because the district canceled school, including the kids' classes at Adaire Elementary School in Fishtown.
