A winter storm Friday froze efforts to complete a long-awaited loan needed to keep cash-strapped Philadelphia solvent until spring.

The first piece of the $150 million bailout fell into place late Thursday, when the city's pension board, representing municipal workers, including the police and firefighters, gave conditional approval to its $37.5 million share of the deal.But a meeting of the state teachers' pension board in Harrisburg scheduled for Friday was postponed because of a winter storm that dumped 2-4 inches of snow on central Pennsylvania and was followed by sleet and freezing rain. The meeting was rescheduled for Sunday at 11 a.m.
