  1. Our power came back on this afternoon after 2.5 days without. We have a Honda portable generator that I ran in the evening to power the furnace to warm the house up, provide water, and chill the refrigerator. It was still damn cold in the house when I got up at 0500 and restarted it. This was a devastating storm for Otsego County and adjacent areas. Lots of infrastructure damage. Even sadder are the fires burning down homes related to improper generator and other equipment misuse.
  2. I’d like to have weather discussion here and everything else can go over there if people want to use discord.
  3. Winter storm watch up here. The kids were off last week for spring break and they have tomorrow off too as part of that break. I can already foresee them being home Tuesday now too. What a scam!
  4. Finally in the middle of April we are in the sweet spot.....
  5. I love love love snow. But wasted spring weekends with 30s and 40s and an inch of slush drives me crazy.
  6. If it snows now then this winter goes on double extra secret probation.
  7. I can't see why a young goalie wouldn't be jumping at the chance to come to Buffalo. It's an up and coming team and if you put in a solid year in the minors you are probably walking straight into an NHL starting job. They really laid an egg tonight against Tampa Bay. Let's hope it's out of their system for the Toronto game. I'd hate to see Power embarrassed on "home" ice in his first NHL game.
  8. But Portillo is staying in college I hear. What to do in goal? UPL better be ready !
  9. The temp has been slowly falling here. Now down to 37F and wet flakes are mixing in with the rain. April!
  10. Well played MXZ. Here's my point and click for the weekend which is utterly craptacular: Tonight A chance of rain showers before 5am, then a chance of rain and snow showers. Increasing clouds, with a low around 34. Light south wind. Chance of precipitation is 40%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. Saturday Rain and snow, becoming all rain after 11am. Some thunder is also possible. High near 45. Calm wind becoming west 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. Saturday Night Rain showers likely before 10pm, then a chance of rain and snow showers between 10pm and midnight, then a slight chance of snow showers after midnight. Some thunder is also possible. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 30. West wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. Sunday A chance of snow showers before 1pm, then a chance of rain and snow showers between 1pm and 2pm, then a chance of rain showers after 2pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 40. West wind 7 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Little or no snow accumulation expected. Sunday Night A chance of rain and snow showers before 8pm, then a slight chance of snow showers between 8pm and 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 29. West wind 3 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
  11. I'm already excited about next fall. I think we are going to have 2 good, exciting teams to root for, for the first time in who knows how many years.
  12. I'd say give them a chance. This is a very different team than the one that took to the ice last fall. I've been a hockey fan for decades. The Sabres of the last 3 years were unwatchable for me they were so bad. I couldn't get through a game because the lack of skill and more importantly the lack of effort was repulsive. The talent level now is rising rapidly and the effort is there. So is the coaching. These guys are young and hungry and want to win. If UPL is any good in goal next year, or they can add a good veteran goalie, they could be competing for a playoff spot this time next year.
  13. I always tell people that April is the worst month to live in upstate NY. So it's clear that I know that fact. And yet when April gets here I am still amazed by just how much it sucks. Cold mud season is vile.
  14. His writing style is not my favorite. It seems like he just throws a bunch of *stuff* against the wall looking to see what sticks. I'm not even sure the data he presents always supports his conclusions. I'd take the other side of a trade against this guy given the opportunity.
  15. It's all elevation. It was 30F when I woke up. Just ticked up to 33F.
  16. Just drove my kids to the barn. Lovely but not so much for "spring".
  17. Nothing says "spring" in upstate NY like a couple of inches of slush....
  18. Next fall is going to be a great time to be a Buffalo sports fan. It should be the best we have had in many many years.
  19. I think that's where his age shows. He looked really slow on that goal. I don't know if coming out aggressively and poke checking is in his bag of tricks, and it is probably too late to add it.
