What a difference a day makes: same park, same spot. The weather Sunday afternoon was so mild that Debby and Tom Parks of Cherry Hill were horseback riding in Cooper River Park and felt "spring fever. " The night's snow brought Rick and Diane Powell to the same spot on skis yesterday.

Offering a selection of flags and other patriotic merchandise, Millie Musha waits for customers outside Bob's Christmasland in Kensington. Yesterday was perfect weather for selling wares outside. Today could be cloudy and wet, but the warmth will hang around.

Nobody shoveling out from under a snowdrift wants to hear it, of course. Nobody who has to bundle up against negative wind-chill factors is going to have much sympathy for the big leaguers going through their paces in ballparks ringed by palm trees. Fact is, though, that by Florida-in-March standards the spring training weather this year has been lousy. The Phillies already have had one game canceled and two others shortened by rain. Workouts have been curtailed and washed out by other downpours.

Erwin Graves addressed the ball - feet shoulder-width apart, head down, arms straight as his fingers snaked around the handle of his No. 1 wood. Then he drew back and unleashed yet another wayward slice that disappeared into the brilliance of yesterday's afternoon sun. Graves, 37, of Kensington, just started playing golf about three months ago and he has "been loving it. " He figured he would have already packed up his clubs for the winter by now. But yesterday he was one of about a half-dozen hackers taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to get in a few more practice strokes at Longknockers Driving Range in North Philadelphia.

Atlantis makes some of the most feature-packed lightweight weather gear around. More protective than rain gear, the outerwear has reinforced seams and closures designed for the likes of boaters in rough seas. My favorite among a wide range of jackets is the newly redesigned Microburst jacket (in "high risk red. ") Made of a soft featherweight nylon blend, the hip-length jacket has long, spacious zippered pockets running the length of both sides of the chest, with internal netting for ventilation, as well as long "pit zips" under each arm. Elasticized cuffs have Velcro closures, and a built-in rain hood rolls and stashes behind the insulated collar.

RE BYKO'S column on weathercasts: Gosh, Stu, isn't it important that your weather doll warn you "be sure to bundle up" since temperatures will drop to 3-below with a wind chill of minus 40. Without such sage advice, you might have gone outdoors in your Speedos. New York's WCBS radio offers "pinpoint weather. " Some folks may really be interested in temperatures at 79th and Madison as well as those at 33rd and 6th. The five-day forecast is a guess. So is the seven-day forecast here in Florida.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - So there they were Saturday afternoon - standing in a breeze perfumed by that pizza-crusty-cinnamon-candy-coconut-sunscreen scent that is classic eau de boardwalk - plotting their next move in what appeared to be a complicated operation of acquisition and distribution. Never mind that it was a great beach day and that just steps away the Atlantic Ocean appeared to be the perfect shade of cerulean blue against a baby blue cloudless sky on this first day of Memorial Day weekend, the official unofficial start of the summer Shore season.

The Monday before this year's Blue-White game at Penn State, football coach James Franklin was worried about the weather. It wasn't so much how his team would handle a slippery ball - Blue-White's only a scrimmage. But the annual event held in April draws 70,000 fans to campus, as well as potential recruits, and Happy Valley, he says, is happiest on a bright, sunny day. So, as game day approached, Franklin took to Twitter to get news from the most reliable source he knows for meteorological matters: Penn State's student-run Campus Weather Service.

Verizon's FiOS TV service has dropped the Weather Channel and replaced it with the just-launched AccuWeather Network, seeking to cut programming costs, Verizon said on Tuesday. "This was a decision to opt-out and not carry the Weather Channel," said Verizon spokesman Lee Gierczynski. In late 2013 and early 2014, DirecTV temporarily dropped the Weather Channel in a carriage dispute over the channel's costs and programming. DirecTV said the channel had abandoned some of its core weather programs that were popular with subscribers for reality shows to boost TV ratings.

These last two winters have not been kind to runners in the Philadelphia area. Last winter, we ran through two back-to-back snowstorms, over streets and sidewalk caked with snow and ice and snow caked in ice. This winter, we've swapped out snow - well, most of it - for long, never ending stretches of below freezing weather made worse by howling winds. Thursday's storm just rubbed rock salt into that wound. Too many times since December I've asked myself why bother. Aside from one blissfully warm week in Florida, I've been switching between boring treadmill runs done while staring at The Price is Right on the gym TV above me, and frigid runs that require face mask, mittens, and a prayer that my foot won't find an icy patch along the way. My favorite paved trails are frozen over.

A new and controversial online standardized test, threatened by a growing opt-out movement, made its official debut this week despite weather disruptions and pockets of high resistance. Two winter storms interfered with the testing schedules of many districts, but the feared widespread computer glitches did not appear to materialize in New Jersey's administering of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). Participation was the big question as criticism mounted in recent weeks, and test opponents urged parents to refuse to allow their third through 11th graders to take the tests.

IT'S PROBABLY safe to assume that T. Milton Street Sr . is not destined to be our next mayor. But maybe he's not even destined to be a candidate. The 73-year-old tax-evading former state senator said in early January that he'd be launching his mayoral campaign at a funeral parlor in a couple weeks. Then, he decided to do it at a church. But the Rev. Keith Goodman , pastor of one of the churches he was eying for the event, kept dodging his calls. Goodman, perhaps not coincidentally, is now running for mayor himself.

Tanya Baker and Hyacinth King expected to strike out with Little Miss Betty Wilson, a 64-year-old homeless woman bundled up and seated alone on a subway concourse floor near City Hall on Sunday. It was sunny and above freezing for the first time in days, but the mercury was about to nosedive again in a mercilessly cold winter that has broken records for cold, if not for snow. Outreach workers, Baker and King had a job to do on another Code Blue day in Philadelphia, the 47th so far. They could have forced Miss Betty to go to a hospital for the night.

THE CITY moved at least 41 homeless people away from exposure to harsh weather from Sunday through yesterday, and more were expected to be relocated by today, authorities said. The Office of Supportive Housing assigned extra outreach teams to bring people in from the extreme cold. They were relocated either to shelters or to places they chose. Roberta Cancellier, the office's deputy director, said some stayed in "overnight cafes," where they got "coffee, soup and just a warm place to be. " One such "cafe" on Broad Street near Pine in Center City, which normally hosts up to 75 people, had 91 on Sunday night into yesterday - 64 men and 27 women, she said.

It was just before 2 a.m. when Mary Noll's cellphone rang to the tune of the Beatles' "Help!" - and the 60-year-old Lower Gwynedd woman knew she was needed urgently. In nearby Norristown, firefighters were battling a four-alarm fire at an apartment complex. Noll, a volunteer disaster response captain for the Red Cross in eastern Montgomery County, began making calls to assemble her team for the night. Starting early that morning and working throughout the day, 10 volunteers and four Red Cross staffers gathered food and medical supplies, set up a shelter for evacuees at a high school, provided counseling, and eventually found hotel rooms for those still displaced the next night.
