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.
