Powerless

We’re still without power here, but the generator is cranking away … so JordanCornblog can, too!

Over in HollyCornblog territory it sounds like it’s been wild.  She writes …

We have had SO much snow in the past few days (we had at least 2 feet by this morning). I don’t mind snow, but I like a little break between storms and it just doesn’t seem to stop. We are snow blowing 3 times a day here. I was late to work this morning after snow blowing last night ’til around 9:00 figuring it would all be clear for me in the morning………NOT SO! The plow had left piles at the end of our driveway SOOO high (almost as high as me), I couldn’t believe it, and that was after trying to keep up with the storm!

Here in NH it’s been mostly rain, although last night we got about an inch or two of wet snow – so now everything is etched in white.  Looks really beautiful (and I am sure HollyCornblog does NOT want to hear about that)!

In other news snippets – I see that the USWNT won another nail-biter (seems to be a pattern under Pia) … pulling out a 2-1 victory over Norway on a muddy Algarve pitch.  Here’s Cat Whitehill, talking about her final (signature) long ball … the one that led to the winning goal:

“There were a lot of big gaps when it came to their defense today and I noticed that Cheney and Abby were finding them really well. I was like, you know what, we don’t have much time left, let’s try and aim for that gap and I know that Cheney can out-run these girls. I thought she was going to score, but at least it got the ball down there and that’s what led to the goal.”

Lauren Cheney as been in the mix for an awful lot of the USWNT’s scoring this trip.  Tony and I look forward to having her on the pitch for the Breakers.  For me, she brings the added bonus of helping me get over my PTSD related to her last name … that would be nice!

Speaking of Tony and me … we are also looking forward to having Sarah Walsh in Breakers’ Blue.  I have enjoyed watching her explosiveness for other teams and think it’ll be a great addiiton to our offensive arsenal.

On the b-ball from – first, I noticed last night that Conant knocked #1 Somersworth out of the Class M Girls Tournament.  Belmont faces off against Fall Mountain today (assuming that weather doesn’t interfere) … and the Belmont Boys play Conant.

In college hoops, the NESCAC tournaments continue, with the Bates women facing Amherst in the semifinals down in Massachusetts at 2 PM, and the men playing Williams (also at 2 but at Williams) in the semifinals.

I was going to write something about Sarah Palin but, you know what?  Life’s too short.  😉

Instead, here’s the Women’s hoops TV schedule … UConn-Notre Dame on Monday night might be interesting!  Remember – all times listed are CENTRAL!
