STONE HARBOR, N.J. - While state officials surveyed the damage Monday left along the New Jersey Shore by a fierce weekend snowstorm, Gov. Christie was pelted for a second day with criticism of his assessment of the impact on the coast. "I don't know what you expect me to do. You want me to go down there with a mop?" Christie replied to a question from a young woman in New Hampshire who said she was speaking on behalf of relatives in New Jersey. She asked why he was there campaigning while New Jersey was still cleaning up from the storm.

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.

FOR ONE CHERRY HILL motorist, getting stuck in a pile of snow during the height of this weekend's blizzard was just the beginning of her problems. According to Cherry Hill police, who responded to about 40 calls for disabled cars during the weekend's storm, one call about 8 p.m. Saturday was "unlike the rest," a news release said. When officers got to the scene of the accident, on Route 70 near Brace Road, motorist Tamera Flynn declined any police assistance, despite the fact that the 2007 Lexus she was driving was "stranded" on a large pile of snow, the news release said.

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.

Last week's nor'easter at the Jersey Shore caused more than $67 million in public and private damage in Cape May County alone, according to preliminary figures released Friday by county emergency management officials. Local, county, and state officials have spent the week since Winter Storm Jonas struck assessing cost estimates to determine whether the region will be eligible to seek federal disaster assistance. Beach and dune erosion cannot be factored in, and other damage to private property and public infrastructure losses determine whether a region meets the federal thresholds for receiving aid, officials said.

Philadelphia's official snowpack from the weekend megastorm is better than 60 percent gone. So far, the record snowfall has been followed by what has to be one of the gentler melts on record, with dry days of temperatures well into the 40s and a benign outlook the rest of the week. "It's exactly the way you want to melt snow," said Jared Klein, a lead forecaster at the National Weather Service Office in Mount Holly. For those living on sun-deprived streets or on hills to the north and west of the city, expect to keep bonding with winter wonderland.

Jim Kenney's first major test as mayor came in the form of 22.5 inches of frozen ice crystals. For Kenney, barely three weeks in office, the snowstorm was an inaugural bout with Mother Nature that set records as the fourth-largest snowfall in Philadelphia history. As residents began to dig out Sunday morning, they waited to see when the plows would arrive. A few still waited Wednesday, and were not happy about it - but many said Kenney did well. "I think he was pitch-perfect," said Jamie Gauthier, president of the Garden Court Community Association in West Philadelphia, where side streets often go unplowed.

Q: I was all excited about getting snowed in with the new man I've been seeing. When he got here, we opened some wine, turned on a movie and sat on the couch. And that's it. There was no kissing. No snuggling. Just a good-night kiss when he went to sleep! He stayed over the next day and the same thing happened. I'm confused and let down. How does a grown man stay over at a woman's place and not try to have sex with her? This situation is making me doubt myself. I don't know if I should ever see him again.

A Philadelphia-area man put his downtime during this weekend's snowstorm to good use: He found a lottery ticket worth $1 million, just before the prize expires.

The man, whose name was not released, found a big winner: A Powerball ticket that won $1 million by matching all five white balls in the Feb. 4, 2015, drawing.

DuPont Highway in New Castle while visiting a friend in Delaware last year.

By John C. Raines I am 82 years old and live on a narrow street near Fitler Square in Center City. And during last weekend's snowstorm, I worried about my front walk and shoveling. I am not as strong as I used to be. And then I heard a shovel - not mine - on the walk outside. It was the young family down the street. They were taking care of me, without my even asking. It is so easy to be cynical these days. It is so easy to give up on something called the common good. It is so easy to give up on dreams that reach out beyond our own desperate ones for our isolated future.

CHEERS AND laughter erupted Sunday night as members of the Temple women's gymnastics team climbed down the steps of their team bus after spending more than 24 hours stranded in blizzard-like conditions along the Pennsylvania Turnpike east of Pittsburgh. "I've never felt so happy to be back at Temple," said Briana Odom, a junior psychology major and member of the team. Buses carrying the gymnasts and the Duquesne University men's basketball team were among more than 500 vehicles stranded Saturday for more than a day in deep snows along a 40-mile stretch of the turnpike between Somerset and Bedford, about 80 miles east of Pittsburgh.
