What does it mean when a seagull sees its shadow in the snow?

Memorial Day will be six weeks later? Nah. The sun is out! But this winter, the snow shadow probably means one other thing. A ton more snow coming. My snowy island! Punxsutawney Phil's got nothing on these gulls (bottom right).

Here's another riddle: What do you get when you roll a snowball down the Boardwalk?

You get a really BIG snowball.

Yesterday's dumping also means we get to name new phenomenon on the beach this morning: snowfoam.

About this blog

Inquirer staff writer Amy S. Rosenberg has covered Philly police, city neighborhoods, Ed Rendell as mayor, the Jersey shore, Atlantic City, Miss America and the psychology of Eagles fans. She moved to Ventnor on July 3, 1995, which makes her a local, but not really.

Inquirer Staff Writer Jacqueline L. Urgo has spent every summer of her life at the Jersey Shore, and has lived there year-round for nearly 30 years, even fulfilling one of her bucket list dreams by once living in a house by the sea.

Since 1990, she has covered the waterfront for The Inquirer — from the Atlantic to the Delaware Bay shore — and some of the mainland in between. Along the way, she amassed an encyclopedic knowledge of this tear-it-down-and-build-it-back-up region, delving into the history and the hype of a place with a lot of unexpected stories to tell.
