Schools are opening with a two-hour delay and trash pickup is still iffy, but things are mostly back to normal today after the storm, which ended up dumping 10 to 12 inches on Philly. That's likely enough to break an 86-year-old record for most snowfall on this date — but in the end, this storm didn’t cause a lot of havoc. People mostly stayed indoors. Except for the dogs. They had to go out…because they had to go. Here's 17 photos of Philly dogs in the spring snow.
It didn’t matter that Monday night’s community forum on the opioid epidemic was about 10 miles away from the underpass at East Kensington Avenue near Emerald Street — residents there heard the speakers loud and clear. That’s thanks to Evan Figueroa-Vargas and Brooke Feldman, two recovery advocates who used tablets, tripods and aux cords to effectively livestream the whole meeting to the Kensington underpass. One resident even got a question answered.
There's a new location tonight for Opening Corks, the fest that kicks off Philly Wine Week. Because of yesterday's storm, instead of being held at the 23rd Street Armory, it's now at Vie on North Broad. Since the Armory is actually a working military station (that only sometimes hosts events), it was called into use housing snow vehicles and equipment. But the wine party will go on...and on for the next eight days. Here's the top 18 Philly Wine Week events we think you won't want to miss.
There are nearly 1,800 Chinese international students at the University of Pennsylvania, and the grand majority of them say they don't have a single American friend. This issue of 34th Street, the arts and culture magazine for the Daily Pennsylvanian, takes a deep look at that issue, as explored by an education grad student's thesis. Is the divide because of differences in understanding what friendship means? Or people falling folly to stereotypes? Or something in the university's culture?
