Not a bad night.
It’s not often that Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River looks like this. Two five-degree days will do that, leaving most Philadelphians frozen as well. Alas, it will be over 50 degrees today and the river, the city and its people have thawed out. We can only look back on the beautiful, icy views, and recall how we never want to feel that cold again.

Call it the result of climate change, call it what you will; a polar bear and penguin were recently seen on the last bit of snow in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. Eyewitnesses say that the polar bear and penguin stayed in the park until late in the evening, then went to the Field House on Filbert Street where they watched the Philadelphia Eagles destroy the Chicago Bears, 54-11.
