Snow Hits Philadelphia and Surrounding Areas
Just a few days after temperatures reached 70 degrees, the winter weather is back. Fortunately this storm won't arrive during our commute. Rather, it hit overnight and ended earlier this morning. We can breathe a sigh of relief that it won't make our commutes a nightmare - unlike the several other "nuisance storms" in January. Most of the area received anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of snow. Philly got 4 to 6 inches and areas south got hit hardest - receiving anywhere from 6 to 10 inches. Philadelphia schools are closed. And, many others are closed or delayed throughout the area. Go to KYW1060.com for school closings in the Philadelphia area. Or, go to WGAL.com for school closings in the York, Lancaster and Harrisburg areas.

Carmelo Anthony is FINALLY Traded To the Knicks
ESPN is reporting that the Knicks and Nuggets have agreed on a trade which will send Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks. The trade will involve the Nuggets, Knicks, and Timberwolves. As a part of the deal, the Knicks will send Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Nuggets, who would get cash and additional picks according to sources. Along with Anthony, New York would acquire Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman. Now, we can finally put the annoying Carmelo Anthony trade rumors to rest. For those of us outside of New York it has become the biggest nuisance in pro sports. It got so sickening that Carmelo Anthony was talking to the Nets and stringing them along while the Nuggets tried to work out a deal with the Knicks.
