On Point Drive at the tip of Longport, where houses were cracked open two years ago by Hurricane Sandy's waves and wind, their multimillion-dollar vulnerability bared to the sea, all is as it was. The Hankins finished a total rebuild. The Tuchmans debated selling, but decided to do the repairs and keep their summer home after all. Marvin Ashner, who never left, not even during the storm, still answers his door beneath whimsical Blues Brothers statues. "Everybody's back," said Steven Hankin, an Atlantic City lawyer who lives on Point Drive, which overlooks the inlet's washing machine currents.

MARGATE, N.J. - The old saying that calm seas never made a good sailor may apply to Salvatore Calabrese when it comes to operating his family's bay-front Blue Water Marina, which was nearly washed away by Hurricane Sandy. Two years and more than $1 million later, Calabrese has weathered the storm after the storm: a series of challenges and setbacks including spending $100,000 just to remove debris from the site and finding adequate funding to complete the rebuilding. The marina is set to fully reopen in the spring.

JUST LIKE Dr. Seuss' Thing 1 and Thing 2, Philadelphia's "Storm 1 and Storm 2" - as Mayor Nutter is calling Sunday's wintry weather and today's predicted conditions - are proving rather troublesome. "The challenge here again is the ice, rain, snow and the refreezing process," Nutter said. "You get ice that binds to the asphalt even when the new snow is on top of it. You can plow the snow; it doesn't work as well with ice once it literally binds to the asphalt. That is a challenge, not only here but everywhere else.

In the days before Bertha hit the Carolinas, forecasters and residents watched closely as the storm spun through the Caribbean. While the fading storm swept north yesterday with heavy rains, relieved officials said the East Coast had been lucky the damage was not worse.

Storm was hot long before Halle Berry. Although being portrayed by arguably the hottest actress on the planet has obviously made her more famous, Storm has been a favorite of comic fans for decades. Storm was created in 1975 by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her powers included flight and the ability to control and manipulate the elements. When these powers manifested themselves, she was worshipped as a goddess in her African homeland before journeying to America to join the X-Men.

Just 11 days after suffering massive damage from a storm that dropped no rain, the Jersey Shore was bracing today for another hit. The prediction: High winds, heavy rain, some flooding, high tides and beach erosion. And unlike the Oct. 31 storm, which caused the second-highest tide on record and at least $72 million in damage, this storm was expected to show its force inland, too. The last storm, which came from the northeast, resulted from a low- pressure system about 300 miles offshore; this low-pressure system, which comes from the south, will be much closer to land.

A storm packing high winds whipped through the Philadelphia area yesterday afternoon, knocking down trees and power lines and making rush hour miserable for thousands of commuters. Lincoln and Kelly drives and many other roads were blocked for a time by downed trees, and SEPTA suspended service on three of its seven regional rail lines. The storm also knocked out power to about 120,000 Philadelphia Electric Co. customers. The storm, which hit between 3:30 and 4 p.m., brought some flooding, but most of the damage was delivered by high winds.

HARTFORD, Conn. - Crews trying to restore power to hundreds of thousands of Northeasterners after a freak weekend snowstorm swept up the coast face a tough job, even with fair weather to work in. The wet, heavy snow that snapped branches and toppled trees across the region Saturday and Sunday brought down an extensive network of wiring, including sturdy, long-distance transmission lines and wires supplying individual homes. More than three million customers lost power at some point from Maryland to Maine, and authorities have said it could be next week before power is restored to the rest of the more than 1.7 million residents who are still in the dark.

Ridley Park did not escape when Friday's storm brought devastation to Delaware County. During the storm, Ridley Lake overflowed and a family had to be evacuated from its home in the 200 block of West Ridley Avenue, Councilman John Naugle told the Borough Council at its meeting Tuesday. The house and the occupants came through unscathed, Naugle added. At the other end of town, a manhole cover at the foot of the East Hinckley Avenue bridge was swept away and there was a blockage within the Central Delaware County Authority line.

The chatter that Pope Francis will visit the land of cheesesteaks and Tastykakes next year has not been officially confirmed. But members of the DiCocco family, owners of the St. Jude Shop Inc. in Havertown, Delaware County, might be in a position to know. In the 50 years since the Catholic religious store was founded, the DiCoccos have been called on to design chairs for pontiffs, arrange a gift from a president to a pope, and help design the interiors of cathedrals. But as far as Francis' visiting Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families, the DiCoccos aren't talking.

Jeff Stoutland has a name he uses to describe the naysayers of the world. There were quite a few members of this so-called fraternity who predicted doom when the Eagles offensive line lost one starter after another and inexperienced backups were pushed to the fore. "I don't live in a world of the 'Fellowship of the Miserable,' " the Eagles' offensive line coach said Thursday. "I never think that way. I'm always thinking that this group is going to be a solid group. We're going to work our butts off to get them ready to play, and they'll be ready if they're called upon.

Two weeks ago, John Robertson looked like a guy capable of carving up FCS defenses with one hand tied behind his back. On Saturday at Villanova Stadium he basically did just that. With his left arm in a soft cast to immobilize his broken nonthrowing hand, the Villanova quarterback rallied his team to a 49-31 victory over James Madison in their Colonial Athletic Association opener. Robertson, who broke the hand in Week 2, finished 22-for-27 passing for 337 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in front of a crowd of 10,781.

The football struck a Roman Catholic defender's hand, ricocheted into the air, and hung over Washington's field on Saturday afternoon for what seemed an eternity. Cahillites coach Joe McCourt watched from the sideline, hoping the fourth-quarter play did not somehow turn into an Archbishop Ryan gain. Tom Stevens ran underneath the ball as it dropped toward the turf. "I hope I don't drop this," the Roman linebacker thought. Stevens grasped the ball and sprinted all alone with the interception for a 35-yard touchdown that sealed visiting Roman's 24-16 win. When the 6-foot-1 junior reached the end zone, he appeared to begin to dive across the goal line before stopping midstride.

AS OPENING statements go, it certainly was a loud one. If Temple's football team - which was coming off a 2-10 season - had won, 2-0, at Vanderbilt on Thursday night, it would have been a keeper. But the two-touchdown underdog Owls rolled, 37-7. The game in Nashville, Tenn., was supposed to start at 9:15 p.m. Philly time, but was delayed 1 hour, 37 minutes because of lightning and it didn't end until 2:14 a.m. here. Some debut for the SEC Network. For whatever reason, the NFL preseason game between the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings a few miles away wasn't interrupted.

NASHVILLE - A big rig with Jersey plates sat outside Vanderbilt Stadium, out on Natchez Trace. When college football teams go on the road, they take their program with them. Logistics are fine-tuned, contingencies planned for. When the rains came Thursday evening, Temple was ready. "We have a lightning plan that's in place. We bring all the food from the hotel in case we ever hit lightning," Temple football coach Matt Rhule was saying later, early Friday morning. There was no forecast, however, for what happened here.

"INTO THE STORM" is a "Sharknado" movie with a troubling lack of sharks. But there is a whale of sorts - an EF5 (big) tornado pursued o'er the amber waves by the Ahabian storm chaser (Matt Walsh), whose obsessive zeal to find and film a gigantic tornado endangers his overworked and fearful crew. They track a super cell to a town in Oklahoma where a high school principal (right-sized Richard Armitage, from the "Hobbit" movies) watches nervously as clouds approach a packed graduation service.
