7:06 am
teacher inservice day so these kid, they actually have a true snow day one they don't to have worry about making up, one that was already built into the calendar, so, if they do get a one to 3 inches up here in the allentown area as predict they could have some fun alex and thomas. >> it is not the same when you already have the day off. they want it when they know you are going to school and then you are told you can stay home. >> reporter: yeah, i guess you are right, they are already excited for fun, right. >> you are right, they don't to have make it up. maybe make mini snow men out there jenny, thank you. 7:06. commuting nightmare is over for thousands of drivers. >> this is great news, delaware river bridge is back opened after being closed for two months, our man steve keeley is throughout this morning. steve? >> reporter: yeah, we are telling our viewers, who will get in their vehicles and so are neon signs on both side of the delaware, over in new jersey, and here in pennsylvania, along veterans

highway, otherwise, known as route 13, pennsylvania turnpikee bridge to new jersey , now opened, and sky fox was over it about a half an hour ago and then giving you a look, traffic is light on the bridge as people got used to this detour since they were abruptly shut down because they found crack on january 20th. if you are used to one way to get to work and didn't hear or didn't think you were sure of what you heard, that it was reopened, didn't take the chance, had the way you were going for weeks now and then maybe people witt get used to this detour fit wasn't out of your way or found it easier or cheaper like brad sattan found a toll freeway to get back and forth, and then remember going back to the old way, that we did find some people happen that i this thing is back opened. >> hopefully they are doing it the right way and not just putting a patch on it and put it together and shut it down, a month from now because is there more issues with it. i necessity i heard it was like april or something it was supposed to be closed still.
7:08 am
hopefully doing it right way. >> ten years ago when i was an hour ahead of the bridge collapse in minute so the a it collapsed an hour behind me. it was like that started a train wreck for everybody, check bridges and then everybody drift add way. now it takes a paint tore do a little paint to go find this stuff. >> i'm's all for infrastructure bill that trump wants to get passed right now. i don't know how or what that will happen but our country need big, major infrastructure rebuilding all over our country and states and high way. >> reporter: we were told early april at the earliest, for it to be reopened, so here we are, before early april in early march, still, march 10th and back opened, so great news , rarely get good news on road construction project. bad news it is getting coated with precipitation. you can see fur face here we are getting rain, and mixed, some of the early snowflakes falling now as it comes up but
7:09 am
road are wet here along the delaware, and river and then you dan see our windshield, it will be wipers too it looks like, you'll like this line, it looks like old man winter 2017, must have came in on a septa regional rail line and that is why it is surviving very late. >> ouch. >> steve, always entertaining. >> bell ring i don't know what the septa officials will be saying. we will get an official statement and read it next hour. >> thanks, steve. 7:09. nurses and technicians at delaware county memorial hospital head back to work this morning, after going on strike. there is still no deal but negotiations are continuing. more than 370 workers walk off the job sunday. they claim that the hospital was bought by prospect medical holdings in july, and staffing conditions, deteriorated. olde city residents getting a fascinating glimpse into life in philadelphia, three century ago.
7:10 am
>> it is a lesson in history that comes after construction crews uncovered a possible who cemetery. >> human bones had already been found last november, at this site, and several, 300 year-old coffins were unearth ed last month but yesterday came the big one, construction crews discovering more than 30 coffins, dating back to colonial philadelphia. >> surprising but i am not really surprised for this neighborhood. there is so much history. who knows what was there prior , probably was a cemetery >> goal, it is to learn something. this is a wonderful opportunity, to really have a window into the earliest citizens of philadelphia, who they were, what their lives were like. >> by law the owner of this site pnc property group is not obligated to do anything special with these remains but what the company has pledged to allow experts at rutgers and mudder me zoom to analyze them and them they will pay to have them reintered at another location. coming up at 7:11. turmoil in south korea where
7:11 am
protests turned deadly offer the impeachment of its first female president. in a historic ruling a constitutional court unanimous ly voted to formally remove president guen-hye from office. it comes after a scandal that pushed the country in political unrest. >> immediately after that decision you see there, protesters took to the streets , clashing with police. we any at lee two people were killed. ousted leader refused to vacate the presidential palace , and has not officially made a statement. time 7:11. arm twisting continues, in washington as president trump tries to reign in members of his own party to repeal and replace obama care. >> it is an all out charm offensive that includes conn joeling and bowling. bowling might be the answer, for this. >> well, what begs question what was the question.
7:12 am
but, yeah, you know, i think white house perspective if pizza and bowling works, why not. they certainly tried it last night, inviting lawmakers over it is not clear it will change numbers here on capitol hill. it may be an odd venue for outreach, we had to dig into c span archive to find it but seldom has single lane white house bowling alley played a more central policy role. they invited select members of the congress for pizza and bowling last night, hoping to win them over. vice-president mike pence, even made it clear that they are opened to negotiation. >> i have to tell you this is all part of what i think is a very healthy debate, healthy dialogue. >> number three, and thinks where i think there is confusion all over the map. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan used a power point presentation to make his .3, stage process to repeal and replace obama care that would offer refundable tax credits to help many purchase health insurance. >> this is the closest we will
7:13 am
ever get to repealing and replacing obama care. >> reporter: but not so fast say some of ryan's fellow republicans, they zoo as a warmed over entitlement. >> god bless speaker but that is not how legislative process is supposed to work. if you have an idea thaw can, toably to the floor, then lets have a debate. >> reporter: democrats of course don't want any part of any of this. >> look, in one likes this bill, hospitals, doctors, governors, conservatives, liberals, non-partisan groups and mess of all the people who will no longer have affordable health care. >> reporter: republicans meantime have a aggressive schedule they are trying to stick too here. vice-president said that they would like to have this done sometime this spring, that is not much time for something that is by its very nature this complicated. thomas and alex. >> we will see if the bowling,
7:14 am
and pace make a difference, perhaps, add beer to the factor and it might make a difference, we will see. 7:14. lets check with scott to see is this know moving closer to. >> we're still dealing with rain but within this hour do i expect some of the snow to begin in the immediate philadelphia area, but folks are out and about right now, and of course, we are dealing with dropping temperatures. 38 degrees is the air temperature, you factor in that wind in and by 29 right now, in philadelphia, so as we look at ultimate doppler where we have green, parts of the south jersey, parts of the delaware, mainly just light rain and sprinkles but once you move north and west, of the city, that is what we're looking at those flakes, flying right now around abington, king of prussia, pottstown, moving in toward the lehigh valley, and then as we zoom in, gibbstown, allaway looking at sprinkles, and glassboro, delran, and
7:15 am
moorestown, looking at rain to start but then changing over to that snow. so, bottom line the steady snow across the area is expected between now and through about 11:00 a.m., by the afternoon still dealing with scattered snow squals that can reduce visibility, and by this evening, it turns bitter cold with wind chills, dipping into the single digits now 41 center city the high today. forty-two down the shore. coating there. two to four in the lehigh valley. much colder pattern for upcoming weekend into early next week. there could a brewing nor'easter. we are watching energy early next week transfer to the coast, as phasing, still uncertainties with the track, timing and just amounts of cold air but it looks like a coastal storm nor'easter brewing by tuesday, of next week. what about upcoming parade weather? it will be cold, bundle up, we are looking at temperatures topping out sunday in the 30's , bob kelly, it is going
7:16 am
to be cold, for that parade, and the seven day forecast shows, temperatures for much of the seven day, yeah, winter making a big come back highs in the 30's. wow. >> a lot going on here not just today but next couple days with the weather. here's a live look, 202, again where we are seeing flakes, begins as snow but quickly, not -- just starting to stick to the grass here but road surface here just wet, so that is start and just enough to kind of make it for yucky morning rush. rain hitting downtown philadelphia, here's a live look at vine street express weighed where road are wet and we are seeing accidents popping up now, northbound on the northe extension just north of the quakertown an accident, new jersey transit said their system wide cross honoring passes here because of the weather conditions in the only this morning but throughout the rest of the day and here's a live look at a closure of route 37 in winslow , new jersey. not fat far from mr. bill's,
7:17 am
one of the spots i was at for my breakfast segment. route 73 closed both directions at egg harbor road an accident with the fuel spill, egg harbor load, everybody pushed off there right before you get to the expressway. here's an example of the road conditions at i78 outside allentown, again, heavy rain and then snow starting to stick to the grass surfaces, alex and thomas, back over to you. well dallas cowboys set to part ways with quarterback tony romo, he posted a thank you video to fans with bob dylann's the times are changing in the background. >> at one point his wife canda ce said enough with the sad music. >> outpouring support and love from all of you, you know, it has been overwhelming and it doesn't go unnoticed, but, i want to say thank you and we have a lot to think about moving forward but we will see
7:18 am
what happens. >> so there are rumors texans may be considering picking up romo but these fans are concerned about his pennsylvania injuries, qb's back injury last season gave way to dak prescott who led cowboys to the 13-three record and in the playoffs. who is a cowboys fans in the news room that would have this. >> we have to know is what happening with the competition >> that is in the me a lot of people were sharing that yesterday, end of an era and i don't know how eagles fans should feel about that, i don't feel bad for him but same time glad he is gone. he was good for a while. >> for a while. >> the thing is, i felt bad, when he read that letter, when he got healthy again and they were saying we will stay with dak. he was crying. >> even his wife was saying. >> she was trying to be funny. >> you have to see that. >> killing the mood. >> yes. >> of course, eagles wasted in time in addressing the wide receiver position in free agency, signing alshon jeffery and torey smith.
7:19 am
jeffery's deal is one year, 14 million-dollar. smith's deal one year, five million-dollar, with options over the next two years. >> those moves coming at a cost. in order to free up cap space the eagles cut defensive end can or barwin. he was leader on the field and made an even bigger impact off of it with community service projects, and connecting with the people of philadelphia, and i think that is why so many people and fans were upset yet. we knew it was coming but it was just like it is connor barwin we're losing connor barwin. >> make the world a better foundation, he's donna macing things him and his wife in the city and he is respected on the field. he didn't to have play, he was cut but it business business but he made such an impact in the community. >> seeing him at so many charity events and take time to take pictures with everybody. he has had a small on his face people are sad. he is such a great person. it is business but you have to think about the person, behind the business, right, and what he meant and he didn't just come here to play but make a
7:20 am
difference and that means so much. so, as we say good bye to connor barwin we realize it must have been love. >> ♪ >> ♪
7:21 am
everybody was talking about it , we who connor and we try to think about he is such a great person the pennsylvania four seasons spending his time in philadelphia. how do you say good bye to someone, connor barwin. we know he was big on conserving energy and making sure you are doing what is right for environment. this is what we will do we will dim the lights as we say good bye. >> city of brotherly love we will never forget. >> always going to be an eagle for sure. we are conserving energy for a minute but we are still doing it and it will make a difference so connor, before you go, please come, stop by, say good bye we want to hear from you. good bye to connor where win as an eagle we will wish you the best. >> i like this mood lighting. >> we will be right back.

7:48 am
system to get through as we go hour by hour, take a look at the temperatures and forecast 9:00 a.m. 36, light snow by lunchtime still dealing with the snow, and then some afternoon snow squals, a high in philadelphia, 41 degrees. lehigh valley two to 4 inches, highs in the 30's and inch or so before all said and done high around 40 degrees as we move toward wilmington and down the shore a light coating of snow, high temperature in the lower 40's, a chilly weekend, 30's on saturday and sunday, cold for st. patrick's day parade on sunday and more significant possible nor'easter on tuesday of next week. >> thanks so much, scott. carson wentz has some new weapons. the eagles wasted in time in addressing the wide receiver position in free agency. thank goodness. signing alshon jeffery and torey smith, jeffery's deal for one year, 14 million-dollar. he has to prove himself. >> and with options over next two years. but the moves came, at a cost.
7:49 am
in order to free up cap space eagles cut defensiv end can or barwin. he was leader on the field and made an even bigger impact off of it. he has done community service projects, and moved to haiti, did some work to help people, and built solar panels. people in philadelphia were upset yesterday. now we will bring in ejtan sander and garry cobb i guess he was sack physician lamb because of them we have got deals it comes down to it is not personal, gist business. they made a move. everybody knew it was coming. hopefully he will get on with somebody else because he fits a different system. 3/4 system. connor is very talented and as you said about his contributions to the community and things, great guy. very intelligent. great leader. from a personal perspective and leadership, they lose something by getting rid of him. >> he will latch on and to gary's point he is still a good football player when you
7:50 am
have a situation to control money, he is valuable. good piece you did earlier because he you recognize he was more than just a football player in philadelphia. >> it means so much. >> you know about those million-dollar contract. >> yes. >> i wish. >> god willing, god willing. >> lets talk about what we did get alshon jeffery a lot of people are excited about this one. >> rightly so. here's the thing we have not had a big body receiver like this since you know who. >> terrell owens. >> this is a one year, make a case type diel deal to show the world he is worth 17, 18 million. he is motivated. i say this could be, the biggest signing we have seen in philadelphia, since 120. because of the impact. the thing about him is when you look at the guys they have to play, cowboys will be good, giants will be good, they need physical players. they are trying to get tough guys. alshon jeffery is a big tough receiver. >> what was interesting, what
7:51 am
i learned yesterday but rumor was he turned down, playing with the vikings and sam bradford and to play eagles and carson wentz. what do you think of that. >> the dude's on the wentz wagon he is on the wentz wagon , which is right. he didn't turn down more money necessarily he wants 17, 18 million a year. nobody was going to offer him that. >> but he is taking a gamble because if he gets hurt that is a gamble. he believes in himself, carson that is a good situation. >> he didn't turn down more money in the sense of the 17 million-dollar a year deal to play with bradford. what he did was he turned down similar money, longer term. he didn't want to be locked to sam bradford and can you blame him. >> look at you, throwing shade this morning. >> let's talk about torey smith who will bring speed. what can he bring to the receiving core. >> he is a deep threat. it makes the safety, that will help you in your short passing game and in the long game. the guy is a legitimate 4.36
7:52 am

7:53 am
same thing happened with kendricks. >> what about the green though >> we are getting ready for st. patrick's day parade. >> yes, throw back eagles. >> yes. >> look at you. >> cash those checks. >> are you at parade then does that mean that. >> i will make it a point to check it out. >> you should. >> we will be looking for you now. >> look fog garry cobb. >> i will be there then. >> okay, we got that. >> appreciate it. >> 7:53. we will continue to track this morning's snow, for you, the timing, how much will fall, and are we really expecting another major storm? next week? make it end, scott.

8:17 am
transverse my lights, a rare auto immune disease that attacks the spinal cord. wyatt was completely paralyzed from his chest down and could not use his hand. he received therapies in his home state and here in philadelphia, but wyatt was taught how to use a real chair and regained full use of his hand and arms w his body in a harness he supported his weight on the treadmill. when strong enough for braces he even learned how to use a walker. through it all one thing remain the same and that is his smile. you can see his smile right now, right here in the studio. we have four year-old wyatt, will you give us a smile, wyatt. >> i love it, i love it. >> and you are here with your mother, abby and physical therapist, marry. >> yes. >> thanks for being with us. >> good morning thanks for having us. >> is that really how it happened, you put him to sleep and then next day how did you know something was up. >> it was that quick, just matter of hours, he went to sleep, was healthy, woke up
8:18 am
next morning wasn't moving, having trouble breathing. we took him to his pediatrician because we had in idea we thought he just didn't want to move. we didn't realize he could not move. we went to our hospital. got transferred to another hospital where he was diagnosed with transverse my lightes and we had no idea it was possible to be paralyzed in your sleep. his body attacked his spinal cord is what happened, it is and auto immune disease, overnight our world changed. we thought hopes and dreams we had for our child were taken away. we have since learned that was not the case. fear made us think that buoy didn't know what was possible. >> that is keyword you thought , that is pennsylvania tense now. you see how far he has come, it is amazing. >> it is amazing. he is a fighter. he has taught us what matters in life. he is joyful. he doesn't think about what he can't do. he wants to celebrate what he can do and he just goes
8:19 am
forward. >> that smile alone you are killing me here. as a mom, parent your world was spinning, how did you know the next step and next process where to go. >> we didn't. our hospital, you know, we left the hospital with a child and that was most difficult thing for me as a parent toys walk out of the hospital with a child who wasn't better and we didn't know what the future was like. shriners was a answer to pray ers. we didn't know what the next step looked like. we left acute care and came straight to shriners in philadelphia for in patient rehab and it was there that we learned more about his condition. when you have a child with the disability first thing you hear is all of the things he can't do and that is what you sianni shriners let you know all of the things that are possible that lets see what we can do if we can't do it like somebody else lets figure out how to do it different and that is what we have done with shriners. >> we are seeing amazing pictures here.
8:20 am
you have been surfing, playing hockey, i mean did you think this was possible when he first walk in the doors. >> so there recovery for this is quite unknown. it is, it could go either way they may in the recover at all or they maintain all their function back. it is just focusing on seven months old, get back to what typical seven month-old is doing and then there were so many milestones he never learned because he became paralyzed at such a young age. training him how to do that with his new body, the nervous system is set up what is physical therapy like, what does it entail. >> basically with a child hoist so little, it is just play. get them motivated to go. but we started little, we started working on getting his core strength back and get him to use his arms. as it came back every year we worked on things like sitting by himself and trying some standing with different braces and get him walking, moving
8:21 am
and more upright something more age appropriate. >> now he can move his arms, right and his hand. >> he will use hand and arms. >> can you wave. >> i love that. >> how far can this go what are the possibility. >> we don't know. we don't set a limit on it. we would love for him not to use the chair but we don't set a limit. we are happy with war we are but we will never stop working toward that full recovery. i truly believe that within day, in wyatt's lifetime there will be a cure for spinal cord injuries and part of my job as a parent and what shriners is doggies making sure his muscles are healthy enough to take advantage of that. if his muscles are not in good shape and 20 years from now there is a cure and his muscles wasted away it would be no good to him. our job toys keep him healthy so when that cure comes he can take advantage of it. >> i'm sure this has been a journey. you wrote a book about this. >> i wrote a book called love
8:22 am
him anyway and basically our story of, a fun, hope, and in hard places and realizing that just because life is different doesn't mean it is not amazing and there aren't good thing in the hard parts of life. god has plus blessed us through this journey. it has been our faith that carried as you long. name of the book comes from we have a 10 year-old, son named jay and when he was six years oldies when wyatt was paralyzed. we came home to tell him that wye had had been paralyzed. we didn't know what to say to him but i didn't want to scar him but i wanted to be honest. we said wyatt could not move. he said is wyatt ever going to get better. will he walk. i said we don't know, baby. at six years old he looked up at us and said well we will love him anyway. that is just it. we will love anyway. no matter what it looks like, or how hard we will just love anyway. >> that is title of the book you are blessing so many parents with your message.
