Phillies' Chaotic Spring Continues: Lidge Out and Possible Snow For Opener

Can we finally say that the Phillies' preseason is a disaster? Chase Utley's knee injury could put him out for months or perhaps the entire season. Brad Lidge was ruled out for 3-to-6 weeks yesterday, but there is now a report that he'll be out until July.  And, now there is a possible Nor'Easter on Friday, which could put the Phillies' 2011 season home opener in doubt.

The Never-Ending Winter of 2010-2011

The Phillies' disastrous spring isn't the only thing which has gone awry. The winter of 2010-2011 has become the never-ending winter for us in the Philadelphia region. And, it has stretched into the beginning of spring. For the better part of four months now we have experienced winter and if you do the math - that equates to 33.33333% of an entire calender year. There is light at the end of the tunnel though. Temps are expected to finally reach 60 degrees on Monday after this stretch of colder-than-normal weather.

Hole in Plane from Philly Caused By Bullet

A bullet hole was found in the exterior of plane which landed in Charlotte yesterday. The plane took off from Philadelphia and after the passengers were off the plane, a routine inspection was conducted when the bullet hole was discovered. The F.B.I. is investigating the cause of the bullet hole. So far authorities believe the plane was shot during it's descent and one possible cause could be a bullet from a shooting gallery near the airport.
