Phew – while NH continues to thaw out and hundreds of thousands continue without power, I guess one of the big dangers has to do with what happens as the ice breaks off of bent trees and they pop back into place (like recoiling springs). Power lines that didn’t break as the ice hung heavy and dragged them down, might be taken out by the thawing trees. (This recoiling is a danger to clean-up crews, too, as we learned n the aftermath of this summer’s tornadoes.)
Anyway, as NH thaws and gets back to normal, the USWNT has traveled to Detroit, where they will meet China on Wednesday for their last match of 2008. Quite a year for the WNT, I’d say! And now they’ve got Pia at least through 2011 … and the WPS starting up … and A-Rod coming out of college … and things are just looking damn good (with the rather glaring exception of the economy).
Yup – definitely!
