    Re: Colgate 2017-18

    I'm 37 miles from the rink, five miles north of Rome in Lee, it's 8 am we already have six inches (forecast is up to 9-14 inches now) there are five thousand people already without power in Oneida and Madison counties, from the weight of the heavy snow I guess. Talked to my buddy in Hamilton and he said the wind is now blowing sideways. Thirty five to fourty five mile an hour winds are predicted for this pm. I "might" miss my first home playoff game in twenty or thirty years, I have driven down in worse weather though. The Dartmouth game when the team went off rte 81((sat night coming from Cornell game Friday night) and didn't get to Gate until nine pm I drove down in two feet of snow. It was one lane near Madison to Hamilton. (Quattro made it)

    The game started at almost 10 PM.

    Huh? Dartmouth is in Hanover, NH, well east of Hamilton. Interstate 81 runs north-south west of Hamilton. Not sure what series (or what calendar year) you're talking about.

    Here in the Boston area, we're getting wind and rain all day and well into the evening. I will probably dish out the $10 to watch tonight's game. Hoping it's a worthwhile investment!

    Probably a home series where you were playing Dartmouth. Seems a bit odd to me as well that they'd go over to 81 unless they were staying in Syracuse, and I don't think there's a NY 81 around; there's a NY 51 but that doesn't seem like a good way to get there.

    Wouldn't be the first time a visiting team has met a similar fate on their wintry trek to Colgate...didn't UMass or WIU have the same problem on Rt. 20 for the football playoffs in 2003?! What's sad is that even with classes cancelled, students will probably still not come to the game :-(

    Oddly enough, there IS a NY 81:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_State_Route_81

    And yes, I've driven NY 51 before. It's a winding road and I drove it at night in pouring rain back on October 1, 2016. It was after the first ever game at Class of '65 Arena, and I was staying the night at a hotel near NYS Thruway Exit 30. Quite the treacherous drive.

    They played Cornell the night before and were on their way to Hamilton. Don't ask me why the bus driver went that way, I don't know. That would be your next question.

    It wasn't a playoff series, just a game, my mistake. The game started about 10 PM, they arrived in Hamilton about 9 PM.

    Madison County is currently under a travel ban, according to syracuse.com . This might get delayed unless that gets lifted... http://www.syracuse.com/weather/inde..._warnings.html

    If they were going from Cornell, then it makes more sense, as you'd get off at either Tully or LaFayette to cut over. Of course, NY 13 from Cortland is also a possibility. I doubt, in stuff like that, they'd consider using Lebanon Road...

    Wind gage here in CNY hit 43 MPH a few minutes ago. Blowing and drifting snow, constant whiteouts. Any folks thinking of coming over from the Capital District: Route 20 will be a disaster, and the Thruway is problematic. I would check with the NYS Highway Dept & Thruway Dept before setting out. IMHO probably best to pay the $10 bucks and stay home...

    Earlier this hockey season, it was snowing and blowing and drifting, so I thought I would avoid Hwy. 26 from Whitney Point, which is my usual route here. I-81 was nicely plowed, but I forgot how hilly Hwy. 20 is east of Lafayette. Single lane. Follow the tire tracks in front of you, up and down the hills. Not fun.

    Especially when you're just west of Cazenovia; that one's a monster. I come from Onondaga County so I can use NY 92 to avoid that, but the hills around Morrisville aren't much better.

    Hopefully all the support people can get to the rink. Then everyone needs to worry about power outages, lines down, etc.

    If a travel ban gets imposed will they cancel the game?

    According to Syracuse dot com, there is a travel ban in effect for Madison County right now.

    If it's not permissible to drive around, not sure how staff and participants are going to get there... but it's possible the ban could lift by then.

    I agree. I am holed up in the University Inn, just wondering from where my next meal is going to come. Nobody even wants to deliver a pizza to me right now. he he he

    Magro's wasn't too bad last time I was there, and that's a short walk down the road... Definitely wouldn't recommend what's across the street even in this situation...

    Yes, I like Magro’s Italian sub sandwich. My problem is that I wear ankle-foot-leg braces and use a cane, so even a short walk in these conditions is a bit of a challenge. The snow-covered hills I mentioned earlier were also a bit of a challenge with my hand-controls. Heck, showering each day with my “drop feet” condition is a challenge. he he he
