Aw c'mon, MTV's Jersey Shore is a bucket of awesome. But not as awesome as this, from Funny or Die, in which The Situation himself can't even face The Situation. Meanwhile, Nicole Polizzi (aka Sn00kie) via twitter is seeking a stylist for New Year's Eve, during which she will be at "Time Square!" Can't wait.

It didn't really end up being worse at the shore as predicted, but we got a nice foot-plus heavy helping of the monster pre-Christmas snow dump that clomped its way up the eastern seaboard the last 24 hours. Made for the always cool beach blizzard activities, like riding boogie boards and sleds down snowy boardwalk ramps and snowboarding on snow-covered sand dunes. Army Corps of Engineers, we thank you for the dunes. The boogie board down the dunes beats the sled every time, kinda nice with to get a spit of snow in your face as you're speeding (relatively) down toward the ocean. Also, very pretty pictures of foamy waves crashing onto snow covered beaches.

Check out these seagull tracks in the snow this morning:

The ocean is in high agitation mode today:

But the sun is out, unexpectedly, and it's beautiful. A little awkward for the TV folks who might have been looking forward to another round of Jersey shore pelted by a storm wading boots fun, but there you go. The winds and rain were gone by morning. Mother Nature sent a storm to roil up the ocean, and threw in a warm, sunny day for fun.

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.
