The first snowfall of the season didn't come off until after Christmas, the latest first snowfall in a hundred years, but it was worth the wait. On Dec. 28, the day after, Chester County wore a spotless white quilt - perfect for lovers of fishing and the outdoors.

A heavy shroud of winter snow transformed this city yesterday from a seaside resort into a Poconos postcard scene, but with squawking seagulls and stranded Super Bowl gamblers who seemed delighted to be trapped there. Snow frosted the casinos, drifted along the Boardwalk and lay piled near the city's shuttered shops. But it did not seem to bother those who braved the heaviest snowstorm to sweep into this town since 1979. "It beats . . . losing money," quipped red-cheeked Tony Latres, as he tossed a football to two companions who slogged along a snow-covered beach to catch his wind-blown passes.

The Darcy family of Fort Washington skated across the ice rink at Dilworth Park on Thursday as "Sleigh Ride" and other festive songs evoking wintry wonderlands played over the speakers. Erin Darcy, 10, wore a fleece. Older sister Caitlin wore a T-shirt. Temperatures reached 71 degrees early Thursday, making it the warmest Christmas Eve on record in Philadelphia and nearly the warmest of any day ever in December. The record high for the month is 73, set Dec. 4 and 7, 1998. Wednesday's high of 70 set the record for Dec. 23, and higher-than-average temperatures are set to continue into the new year.

IT LOOKED LIKE a perfect plan. Spend tomorrow finishing your holiday shopping. Then, Sunday, you can hit the Linc parking lots early, do some hearty tailgating, then amble without guilt to your seat and enjoy the soaring, high-scoring, Eagles and DeSean "Long-Gone" Jackson putting on another show in space. Well, into every perfect last weekend to shop a few snowflakes must fall - or a few hundred trillion. The Philadelphia region and most of the Middle Atlantic states are on the cusp of one of the biggest pre-Christmas storms in local weather history.

Outdoor ice skating is returning to a once-popular spot in Camden County. An ice rink is set to open next week, on Black Friday, in Pennsauken's Cooper River Park. The 50- by 70-foot rink will be surrounded by music, strings of lights, and tents selling hot chocolate and pretzels, county officials said. "This is our crown jewel," Camden City Council president Frank Moran said. "We are turning the park into a winter wonderland. " The park was a popular skating location decades ago, county officials said.

A winter wonderland, it wasn't for this umbrella-toting pedestrian who was sloshing her way across the Swarthmore College campus yesterday. Sunnier weather is expected for today, although a shower is possible, along with a high temperature near 50.

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.

YOU'RE TAKING those first tentative post-Thanksgiving footsteps right now, trying like hell to button your pants while eyeballing that leftover slice of pumpkin pie. Sure, you could keep stuffing your face - really, we won't judge - but you'd probably be better off heading down to the waterfront to check out the Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest, which opens to the public today at 11 a.m. Winterfest is brought to you by the Delaware River Waterfront...

An overnight snow slickened area roads, with the worst in South Jersey, but it might prove fast-fleeting. The snow covered barely registered, but was enough to blanket lawns and roads. With a low of 29, temperatures are expected to climb today. However, unexpectedly slick roads could cause problems through at least the early part of the morning commute. A number of accidents were reported overnight in Philadelphia, suburban Pennsylvania and South Jersey. The National Weather Service is calling today for a high of 41 and increased warming the next few days.

I dropped by Darby Township last week with a business proposition for winter-weary residents: I would personally guard their shoveled-out parking spaces from vultures, thieves, and the cops. For now, consider this a one-woman operation. Should demand exceed my free time, I'll round up others to stand sentry while Granny runs to Wawa. We'd work for coffee and tips, I figure, dramatically undercutting the $300 to $1,000 fines that Darby homeowners face under a new ordinance attacking the time-tested practice of setting out plastic patio chairs to mark a minivan's turf.

While Thanksgiving's history, Santa can still relax. 'Cause Dan Hicks has his back. The laid back, vintage swing-styled jazz folkster with the equally flip flair at humor is giving the Claus clan extra reasons to be ho-ho-ho-ing on his new album set "Crazy for Christmas. " And that music's sure to be featured, too, in Hicks' shows tomorrow at Appel Farm Arts and Music Center and next Friday at the Sellersville Theater. Dig how the dude's only half-mad and half-glad that "Somebody Stole My Santa Claus Suit" (and even the pillow off his bed, hmmm)
