    After years of planning and handwringing over fundraising, the first phase of Philadelphia's own " High Line," the transformation of the Reading Viaduct rail line, was opened to the public last Thursday. Although the Rail Park 's first spur is only a quarter mile long, the rail line will be twice as long and wide as New York's High Line when fully built out.

Weather nerd time! As a cold front is making ...

Weather nerd time! As a cold front is making its way through the area today, a sea breeze is moving inland behind it. If you look close enough, you can make out the faint east-west oriented front on radar moving south through southern NJ and the north-south oriented sea breeze fine line moving westward and inland along and north of the front in eastern NJ. Why is this?? The wind ahead of the front is westerly which hinders the sea breeze boundary from propagating westward and inland, essentially "pushing" it toward the coast. The wind behind the front is northerly and therefore the wind is no longer "pushing" the sea breeze toward the coast. The result is the sea breeze moving inland. 🤓
