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.

Yesterday's wind-driven deluge interfered with communcations, made driving a nightmare, tipped over trees in the rain-softened earth and toppled power lines. But as bad as it was, it wasn't as bad as it could have been, said a National Weather Service meteorologist. By evening, 1.56 inches of rain had fallen at Philadelphia International Airport, and wind gusts of 56 mph were reported there, according to NWS. "It's not unusual to get two or three inches in coastal storms in the wintertime," said meteorlogist Ken Hagy.

OAKMONT, Pa. - The highlight of Thursday's weather-interrupted opening round of the U.S. Open? Well, for a select few, it might have been during the first suspension of play in the late morning, when the European threesome of Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald (and their caddies) found themselves stuck in the media dining tent at Oakmont Country Club taking in the pivotal England-Wales football match from the Euro Championships in France. What else were they going to be doing?

The Edison Electric Institute on Tuesday recognized Peco Energy Co. and seven other North American utilities for rapid recoveries from storm emergencies last year. Peco received an EEI Emergency Recovery Award for restoring electric service to more than 260,000 customers knocked out by a severe summer storm in June 2015. The company deployed more than 2,500 employees, local contractors and crews from five states to restore service to 92 percent of the customers in 36 hours. It was the fourth Emergency Recovery Award Peco has received since 2010.

Doug Pederson was never in a position to skip offseason workouts or attempt to force a trade or hold out for a new contract, but it's likely he wanted to at one time or another, and, at the least, shared locker rooms with players that were able to take those stances without repercussions. Would he have preferred for Sam Bradford, Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles to attend all of his first offseason as Eagles coach? Is Riley Cooper looking for a job outside the fast food industry? But Pederson never said as much publicly, never questioned their desires, and never instigated a showdown even though the Eagles had leverage in each circumstance.

With unexpected ferocity, a potent squall line ripped through the region around lunchtime Wednesday, knocking out power to more than 80,000 utility customers, toppling trees, and causing significant transportation delays. A wind gust of 72 mph was reported in Cumberland County, N.J., said National Weather Service meteorologist Patrick O'Hara, and gusts of 50 to 65 mph were common elsewhere on both sides of the Delaware River. The winds downed trees all over the region, with 27 of them in Haverford Township, Delaware County, alone, township emergency officials said.

For nearly an hour, the only sounds emanating from the lacrosse field at Neumann University were the pitter-patter of raindrops and the clap of thunder. That is, however, until Archbishop Wood and Archbishop Carroll finally bounded noisily from the school's gymnasium adjacent the field, cheering their freedom after lightning caused a considerable delay. When play finally resumed, an hour and 41 minutes had lapsed, but Carroll's girls wasted no time claiming their 16th consecutive Catholic League championship with a 21-4 victory.

Seneca's Tyver Butler had spent a bit of time as a midfielder before high school, and he had a cup of coffee at the position as a sophomore. By nature, though, he's an attack. So his display over the last three games after switching to center midfield late in his senior season - 10 goals, including four in a 13-3 win over visiting Bishop Eustace on Friday night - is as much a testament to his guts as it is to his athleticism. "He actually came to me about this," said Seneca coach Rob Davidson.

The snows of January have long since given way to the rains (and occasional snows) of April, but Pennsylvania's slow thaw hasn't eased the peculiar form of brain freeze afflicting turnpike officials. Despite having taken a very long look at the latest snowbound stranding of hundreds of motorists on the toll road they ostensibly run, they remain incapable of acknowledging their failure. In fact, an untrained reader of the turnpike agency's "after-action report" could be forgiven for thinking officials were basking in the afterglow of a stunning success - a word that appears therein more than once.

In this excerpt, a storm that forecasters said would simply pass is gaining force, and speed. With Mira's mother and brother in a hospital on the main land, Mira is alone as the storm - and a stranger - encroaches.

A man was injured Sunday morning when part of a warehouse building in Southwest Philadelphia collapsed after a night of thunderstorms and heavy wind, scattering bricks onto the 5000 block of Warrington Avenue. Auto body worker Turhon Eulett was briefly hospitalized after his parked car was crushed by falling bricks around 5 a.m. "I was sitting inside my car and whoosh, the building came crashing down. … If anyone was in the passenger seat, they'd be finished," Eulett said.

NEW YORK - Villanova roared out of the locker room and onto the court Sunday at the Barclays Center playing as if it didn't just want to snap its streak of second-round failures in the NCAA tournament, it wanted to smash it into little pieces. Still, the second-seeded Wildcats insisted that despite all the questions over the last several months and the near-suffocating pressure to get to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2009, they didn't come out against Iowa any more fired up than at any other time during their season.
