The Daily Numbers - Jan. 31

The Daily Numbers: 37.8 inches of snow that have fallen so far this winter. Don’t look now but more is on the way.


1-3 inches of snow expected overnight into Tuesday morning.


34, age of Chester Township mother who has been missing since leaving her job at Fair Acres last Thursday.


1,000 square foot Giant supermarket and 12 gas pumps being proposed in Aston. Residents are not happy about it.


3 homicides reported in Philadelphia yesterday.


27, age of schoolteacher found dead in Manayunk. Now agencies seem to be arguing about whether it was a homicide or suicide.


6 people shot during an altercation at a bowling alley in Claymont, Del., Friday night.


3.17 a gallon, average price of gasoline in the Philly region. That’s actually down 2 cents from the week before. A year ago we were paying $2.73 a gallon.


55-41 win for the NFC over the AFC in the Pro Bowl game last night.


2 field goals and 7 points in the game for David Akers, making him the all-time leading scorer in Pro Bowl history.


5 of 10 passing for 59 yards for NFC starter Michael Vick


48 days until the first day of spring. Don’t forget to take part in the Great Heron’s Nest Snow Prognosticating Contest. Guess the number of measurable snows between now and March 20. I say 9. We’ve had 3, and there is more on the way tonight.


13 days until Phillies pitchers and catchers report to Clearwater.
