Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

They came down out of the sky over the weekend, 46 pilots from as far away as Connecticut and Washington, D.C., to bring warm clothing for the homeless to Chester County Airport. "Wings of Warmth," sponsored by a group of area fliers, donated 250 large bags of clothing to several area organizations that serve the homeless. Among the recipients during the two-day fly-in were the Friends Shelter of West Chester, the First Seventh Day Adventist Church Shelter of Coatesville, the YWCA of Coatesville, the Salvation Army of West Chester and the Pottstown Community Service Center.

Kelli Dayton's outfit alone was worth the price of admission at the Five Spot on Monday night. Looking like a punk-rock kewpie doll, the tiny front woman for English trip-hoppers Sneaker Pimps was dressed in an aqua tank top with a sheriff's badge pinned to her chest, a big cowboy belt, a sequined miniskirt, and glittery, strappy high heels. Tattooed on one porcelain shoulder was a tiger; on the other, "Viva Rock n' Roll. " Also visible was the "CH" of her much-publicized "Chaos" tattoo, which could be spied on her left breast.

The nightlife scene hopes to stave off the goosebumps of late summer by heating it up with lounge openings and sultry soirees. Marbar opened last week above Marathon Grill and is positioned to attract night owls - other than college students - to University City, especially with Lucas Rivera as the resident DJ on Wednesdays. The upscale crowd he catered to at Mojitos during the summer should follow him to 40th and Walnut Streets. You could also head up the Boulevard to Infinity, where Thursdays are Ladies' Night.

Late at night, long after Agnes M. Cadran should have locked the Deegan Real Estate Inc. office on Allegheny Avenue in Port Richmond, you could rap on the window. She'd open the door, invite you inside, sit you in the chair next to the little sign that reads, "What you say here stays here. " And she'd listen. For most of her 80-some years - age is something she considered nobody's business - Agnes Cadran was the neighborhood sounding board, dispensing advice and warmth with a no-nonsense style.

After a brief flirtation with normality during the weekend, the weather in Christmas week evidently is going to feel a lot like Easter. White Christmas? Santa's sleigh had better have wheels. Forecasters say the highs Christmas Eve should reach the mid- to upper 60s, about normal for the latter half of April. In the meantime, an impressive streak is about to end. Saturday will be the first day of below-normal temperatures in 24 days. Through Thursday, official temperatures in Philadelphia were running almost 12 degrees above normal this month, which almost certainly will become the warmest December on record.

Buzz: Hey Marnie, I'm going skiing this weekend and I always carry a flask. What's the best whiskey for keeping warm? Marnie: Well, anything with alcohol will make you feel warm. The higher the proof, the stronger the effect. But I wouldn't recommend shots of whiskey in freezing weather, Buzz. The warming effect of whiskey is merely an illusion, although it does explain why we crave stronger spirits like whiskey in winter and lighter beers and cocktails in hot summer weather.

Brandi Carlile was an atmospheric folk doyenne from Washington - on a Jesus kick, and inspired in equal part by Neko Case and Patsy Cline - when her 2007 album The Story hit. Its powerful title track wound up in commercials, and Carlile was a smash. She's released several albums since (most of them better than The Story ), including this year's The Firewatcher's Daughter . On Sunday, she packed The Fillmore Philadelphia 10 days after its opening. Sunday also welcomed the opening of The Foundry, Fillmore's club-within-a-club, with Philly-born Tonight Show drummer Questlove commencing his once-a-month DJ residency that lasts through 2015.

Many people dislike the gray winters in Philadelphia. They find the season bleak and depressing. But I like the winter light; the slanting rays of sunshine that penetrate the ashen skies of December and January are soft and gentle. It is the light in my memories of the cold winters when I was a kid, winters that elicited no thoughts of global warming, winters when we could count on at least a few snowy days to drag our sleds up from the basement and tromp around the neighborhood searching for hills.

In his younger days, Colin Montgomerie seemed to be a magnet for verbal abuse by people in the galleries who would come to see him play in a major championship or at the Ryder Cup in the United States and try to get under his skin. The barbs got so bad against the Scotsman during one Ryder Cup singles match in 1999 at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., that Payne Stewart, his opponent, would point out hecklers to security personnel to have them ejected from the course. Golf Digest later handed out "Be Nice to Monty" buttons in time for the 2002 U.S. Open in the hopes of keeping things calm.

Around a sumptuous lunch table, the colonel and the dean chat with the professor and the salesperson. The politician takes a seat as our hostess, who's at the piano, makes an announcement. "I will play for you some cafe music," Jean N. Rances says, fingers cascading into "The Glory of Love. " And why not? A frosty afternoon in Cherry Hill has left us in need of a bit of warmth. And Rances (rhymes with Frances) offers that and more, melting the ice with a blaze of hospitality and personality.

Danny Garcia arrived at Burlington Coat Factory in Center City on Tuesday morning to outfit three families with winter coats. But the families were not there. They were stuck in traffic, someone told the light-welterweight champion from Juniata Park. "People in Philly are always late," Garcia joked. "They're going to show up when we're leaving. " The families arrived and Garcia and his father, Angel, helped them grab coats, scarves, and gloves. The champ, as his father calls him, paid for it all. The Garcias then packed coats into cardboard boxes and drove them to Hunting Park's Casa Del Carmen.

Between a bout of record cold and a big snow dump to come, Philadelphia got a shot of extreme warmth Monday. Temperatures hit 72 degrees, the highest point on record for a Nov. 24. It was the warmest Nov. 24 since 1979, which was followed by a winter of average snowfall, totaling just a third of what Philadelphia saw last winter. Just days before the warmer weather, Wednesday morning saw a record-low temperature for a Nov. 19, dropping to 20 degrees around 6 a.m. to tie the low on that day in 1936.

Trading beat-up winter coats for shorts and T-shirts, people released from winter's grip poured into parks and streets across the region Saturday like bears awakening from hibernation. Temperatures soared into the upper 50s after a Friday that hit 63 as the city was bathed in sunlight. For folks in the region, it marked a well-deserved break from the third-snowiest winter - 58.4 inches so far - in Philadelphia history. On the street, smiles replaced a sense of collective defeat brought on by the season's seemingly never-ending barrage of storms.

THE CITY'S homeless-outreach organizations have a secret weapon in Sean Rafferty, particularly when it comes to surveying the individual men and women who camp out on Philadelphia's streets, transit concourses and other public spaces. It's not often, after all, that the workers completing those surveys can swap stories about what it's like to have no place to go home. "The best way to address the homeless problem is through people who know where they're coming from," said Rafferty, who spent 10 years living on the streets of Philadelphia.
