Mother Nature was in a damp, dreary mood yesterday. But that didn't bother Ralph DeJesus and Maria Garcia at Penn's Landing, as they paused near the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, which was obscured by a romantic mist.

Like Janus, the two-faced god of January, the dry air that moved into the Philadelphia area last night had a good side and a bad. It banished the heavy fog that had temporarily halted incoming flights at Philadelphia International Airport. But it left roads glazed in some areas surrounding the city, causing rush- hour jams on some suburban highways and a spinout that swept a car from West River Drive onto the ice in the Schuylkill. "This is the time of year for it," said Accu-Weather meteorologist Elliot Abrams, speaking of the ice, which was only a minor-league repeat of last Wednesday's accident-littered slippery surface.

With a little bit of creative scheduling, Hammonton High was in position to earn a South Jersey Group 2 tournament berth Friday night. That was before the fog rolled in and the Blue Devils' tournament chances rolled out. Hammonton and Middle Township battled to a 9-9, six-inning tie Friday night at the Hammonton Lake Park field. Hammonton, needing a win to qualify for the tournament, had taken a 13-9 lead by scoring four runs in the top of the seventh, when the game was stopped because of fog. Normally the game would have been replayed later, but since the NJSIAA needed to know all of the teams' records that day, the game's score at the last completed inning was considered the final score.

A fog engulfed the region overnight, and is causing difficult driving conditions along many roads in Philadelphia and the suburbs including South Jersey. The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a dense fog advisory through at least 10 a.m. The advisory, which comes on the first day of spring, noted that visibility along roads has been reduced to below a quarter of a mile and that it could result in difficult driving conditions. It was also advising that the fog could impact marine traffic along the coast.

Tiger Woods is going to have to wait to pursue a seventh win at Torrey Pines. Thick fog forced a long delay Saturday in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego. Players began the round after a three-hour delay, only for the fog to return five minutes after they started. No one finished more than one hole. Officials hoped to finish before dark Sunday. It will be the second of four PGA Tour events this year that went an extra day. The Tournament of Champions was reduced to 54 holes and completed on Tuesday.

Motorists across Philadelphia, its suburbs and Southern New Jersey face a slower morning commute along many major roads this morning. That will be especially true crossing area bridges. A dense fog advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. Forecasters say the fog could reduce visibility to a quarter mile or less before it burns off. Motorists are advised to slow down and leave plenty of distance between vehicles. Traffic is reduced to 35 m.p.h. on the Ben Franklin, Walt Whitman and Betsy Ross Bridges, and to 25 m.p.h.

DARTMOOR, England - We sought a break from the bustle of London at a remote cottage perched on the edge of Dartmoor - the legendary, perhaps haunted, bog in southwest England that achieved fame in stories such as The Hound of the Baskervilles . Our visions of long walks across the sun-dappled moor were washed out by two weeks of rain following the wettest spring on record, which, for England, is saying something. (It wasn't until the end of our stay that we learned at a local tavern that Dartmoor is one of the soggiest places in the entire country.)

While you were sleeping early this morning, the fog came in like Carl Sandburg said it does - on little cat feet. Besides the widespread dense fog, the forecast called for lots of drizzle and a high between 44 and 48 degrees. Mild air from the south has formed an umbrella over the snow cover, causing moisture generated by the melting snow to convert into a fog," said Accu- Weather meteorologist Paul Stein. The fog caused delays and some flight cancellations at Philadelphia International Airport last night, an airport spokesman said.

All action takes place, so to speak, in a kind of twilight which, like fog or moonlight, often tends to make things seem grotesque and larger than they really are. - Clausewitz, "On War. " "Platoon" is a great combat movie, an unrelenting infantryman's-eye view of war. And what the foot soldier sees is what Clausewitz in 1832 called the "fog of war," the swirling confusion on the ground of battle. "Platoon" is a riveting two-hour re-creation (by one who lived it) of the alternating boredom, terror, and madness of combat in Vietnam.

Casablanca is a beloved classic that is famous for who's not in it. Can you imagine George Raft instead of Humphrey Bogart, Anne Sheridan instead of Ingrid Bergman, Ronald Reagan instead of Paul Henreid? Those were some of the stars considered before Bogart, Bergman and Henreid combined for one of the most enduring triangles in movies. The fog that surrounds Bogie at the end of Casablanca is a pretty apt symbol of the way the picture was made. Everyone involved thought they were making a throwaway - not screen history.

SINCE HE arrived in June 2012, school Superintendent William Hite has had to live through a nightmare not of his own making. He came to Philadelphia to help the schools. Instead, he has been forced to oversee a slash-and-burn operation, shedding thousands of jobs and services in a poor district that genuinely needs all the help it can get. It seems no one wants to listen to Hite's earnest - and increasingly frantic - calls for help, certainly not among the political class, which controls the purse strings.

THE RESIGNATION this week of Pedro Ramos as head of the School Reform Commission and Gov. Corbett's replacement pick, whenever it comes, is bound to roil the whole issue of state funding for public schools. It's an issue that separates most Democrats from most Republicans, is certain to play big in next year's gubernatorial election and creates something like a fog of war. It's confusing and forces facts into separate ideological corners. The answer to whether Corbett drastically cut money for education or is funding schools at record levels (or both)

THE FORECAST for the U.S. Open today calls for a severe storm with a 100 percent chance of biting one-liners by Joe Conklin. The sports comedian, who grew up in Olney, plays at Parx Casino every Wednesday at 8 p.m. Here are a few of his observations that we were able to get into a family newspaper: * Tiger Woods justified taking a practice round wearing cargo shorts in violation of the club's "no shorts" policy. He said that was all he had left after the divorce settlement. * The winner will be 3-under par . . . and that still will be taller than Mike Kern.

Spoofing Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson isn't exactly a novel notion, although this Curio Theatre parody of The Hound of the Baskervilles by Steven Canny and John Nicholson gives elementary a whole new meaning. If you stick it out until Act Two, things suddenly get funny. Steve Carpenter, who's been playing Sherlock Holmes with an off-again, on-again Russian accent, is outraged to learn that somebody has tweeted during intermission, complaining that his performance is really slowing the show down.

SAN DIEGO - Everything became perfectly clear Sunday at Torrey Pines. Tiger Woods was on his game and headed to yet another win. Woods seized control in the fog-delayed Farmers Insurance Open with a 3-under 69 and a 4-shot lead after the third round. He stretched his lead to six shots through seven holes when the final round was suspended by darkness. Because fog wiped out all of Saturday, players were going as long as daylight allowed before returning Monday to complete the tournament.

The skies might not have been, but the consensus among golfers Sunday at the Pennsauken Country Club was clear: The weather forecasters had lied. Through last week, meteorologists predicted a springlike, midwinter gift would descend on the Philadelphia region for the weekend: blue skies, plenty of sun, temperatures in the mid-60s. Accordingly, golfers who hadn't touched their clubs in weeks, if not months, swarmed the Pennsauken course, reserving tee times days in advance. By Friday, it had been booked for Saturday and Sunday through 2 p.m. - "unheard of in January," said Bryan Garrison, an assistant professional at the club.

The morning fog defied predictions it was likely to lift by 10 a.m., remaining dense even in Center City more than 40 minutes later. Visibility, though, which was only a quarter-mile as of 8 a.m., had improved at half-mile at Philadelphia International Airport, which saw some morning delays. (To check a flight, go to www.phl.org .) A bunch of rush-hour accidents - nine was the count around 8 a.m. - gave way to just a couple around the area nearly three hours later, according to traffic.com.

BEAUMONT, Texas - Two people died and more than 80 people were hurt Thursday when at least 100 vehicles collided in Southeast Texas in a pileup that left trucks twisted on top of each other and authorities rushing to pull survivors from the wreckage. The collision occurred in extremely foggy conditions about 8:45 a.m. Thanksgiving Day on Interstate 10 southwest of Beaumont, a Gulf Coast city about 80 miles east of Houston. A man and a woman were killed in a Chevrolet Suburban crushed by a tractor-trailer, the Texas Department of Public Safety told KFDM-TV.
