While the air was extraordinarily balmy yesterday, the water that swallowed a 10-year-old Trenton boy as he played with friends on a rope at an illegal swimming hole was frigid, probably around 40 degrees, say police. The boy, identified by police as Vashawn Crews, was pulled from a small, abandoned quarry lake and resuscitated by emergency crews, then taken to Delaware Valley Medical Center. From there, he was transferred a few hours later to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, where he was listed in critical condition last night.

Summer slipped away over a cold, rough surf along the New Jersey Shore yesterday as shivering beachgoers tossed odd mixtures of heavy clothing atop bathing suits and huddled inside shops to keep warm. An offshore storm dragged heavy clouds, cool temperatures and a less-than- pleasant wind across the Jersey seashore towns, unfolding a scene more like early autumn than end-of-summer, and leaving some beaches virtually vacant. Thousands of sunseekers in Margate, Ocean City, Avalon and Stone Harbor gave up, packed up and pulled out early in their cars and vans for the trip home to reality.

The safe way to thaw a frozen turkey is in the refrigerator, but often there isn't enough room in the refrigerator to make that a practical option. If your turkey is reasonably small, and you have a microwave oven, you can thaw it there. Thawing procedures vary by oven, however, so you will need to check the manual carefully for instructions. You should plan to thaw the turkey right before cooking. A somewhat more cumbersome method is to place the turkey in a heavy-duty freezer bag and carefully tie it closed.

Good thing my clothes can't feel anything or talk. If they could, they'd surely berate me. I used to bathe them in nice warm water. These days, they're thrashing about in cold. From my viewpoint, it's all good. Cold water means they don't shrink, they don't fade, I save money by not using hot water, and — more to the point of this column — I'm helping the environment by not using as much electricity. According to most estimates, heating the water accounts for about 80 to 85 percent of the energy consumed by a typical batch of laundry.

P OLICE YESTERDAY pulled a body from the Schuylkill near Martin Luther King Drive and Black Road. Lt. John Walker, of the Southwest Detective Division, said it was too early to determine how long the person, whose age and gender were not immediately available, had been submerged. Cops in the Marine Unit said they expect to pull more bodies from the water as the weather gets warmer, because as the water warms up, bodies that may have been submerged float. In cold water, corpses drop to the bottom, but a rise in water temperature causes gases in the bodies to expand, making them float.

The Philadelphia Water Department reported Monday the appearance of rusty water in University City and urged customers to limit the use of the water while the utility cleans the system. The department said the rusty water is not a health hazard, but it is a nuisance. Once the system is cleared, customers should run cold water through their pipes to remove any accumulated rust. Customers with questions can call the department's hotline at 215-685-6300.    - Robert Moran

Here are some helpful hints for working in your home and garden: A coffee filter placed inside a cast-iron skillet when stored will absorb moisture and prevent rusting. When making your own baby food, puree and freeze in ice-cube trays; store in a plastic bag and defrost as needed. To prevent ice crystals from forming on ice cream, place a sheet of aluminum foil or plastic wrap against the ice cream surface after opening the carton. Close and store in plastic bag in freezer.

Thursday's heavy snowfall did not deter Doug Maday, the South Jersey used-car dealer who has been plunging into the ocean at Seaside Heights every day since Labor Day, 187 days ago. With the air a brisk 23 degrees, and the water a bone-chilling 32.5, Maday took the latest plunge of his yearlong quest shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday. "It's usually the warmest time of the day," he said. He went in on the south side of Casino Pier, as he often does, because it provides some protection from the wind.

Anthony McCarley felt the need to cross the English Channel before he even learned to swim. He doesn't know why or how the dream was born, but suddenly he was 49, living in Berwyn, and decided his chance was slipping away. So in 2009, he began hitting the pool at the Upper Main Line YMCA. He worked himself up to 10,000 meters - six miles, three to four hours per swim. He wouldn't drink or eat because he wanted to prepare himself for the body in revolt. He was somewhat mad, admittedly.

Step outside lately? It's bad enough walking the dog right now, but running in this muck can be torture. "The primary issue is the impact the heat and humidity has on our body's core temperature," said Maria Simone, USATF-certified coach of the Absecon, N.J.-based No Limits Endurance Coaching. Normally, we're at 97 to 99 degrees. Run outside on a hot and humid day and you can push that core temperature up past 100. "Research suggests that as our core body temperature approaches 103 degrees, our bodies fatigue, pace slows, rate of perceived exertion increases, and we risk heat exhaustion or stroke if the core temp continues to rise even more," she said.

Maliyah Gregg's eyes lit up when she spied a package of bacon on the counter for cooking class in the convent kitchen at St. Martin De Porres in North Philadelphia. And then she saw the spinach. "Can I eat just the bacon? Please? Just the bacon and a boiled egg. It will be like breakfast. Please?" After four weeks of cooking lessons, I had gotten the message loud and clear from Maliyah and the other 5th and 6th grade girls: We want meat! While many people are eating less meat and trying to center meals around other proteins for health and environmental reasons, these girls are not quite buying in. I heard the same chorus from my own two boys when I tried meatless family dinners when they were growing up. For them, it just didn't feel like dinner without meat.

1. Slow cookers vary in size, and every unit has a small variability in cooking times. Allow extra cooking time while you learn the particulars of your device. 2. A Crock-Pot's ceramic insert is hardy, but it can crack. Always thaw frozen food before adding to the pot. And allow the insert to cool before washing, especially if you're using cold water. 3. Kidney beans should be brought to a boil before slow cooking to destroy a toxin that low-temperature cooking won't. The toxin, with the unpronounceable name of phytohaemagglutinin, causes digestive distress.

NAOMI WATTS is deservedly getting Oscar buzz for her role as a mom trying to save her family during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, but Tom Holland, who plays her teenage son in the movie, matches her step for soggy step. Not bad for a 16-year-old in his first film. And talk about versatility, Holland's previous role was in London's West End, as a ballet dancing miner's son in "Billy Elliot. " "I did 'Billy Elliott' and I enjoyed it thoroughly," Holland said in September during the Toronto International Film Festival.
