This sounds familiar I know, but please wish your fellow DU fan and Captain of his summer lively hood luck as Irene approaches. The boat is secure but not hauled, taking a chance here that the cold waters of Maine will help weaken the storm. Tense times around here!! Oh, and go DU!!!!!

Fingers crossed. It's weakening. My guess is you'll be okay. By the time it reaches you, it doesn't look like there will be much left. Just to cheer you up, during the great Galveston hurricane of 1900, the worst natural disaster in US history, with a death toll far above 9/11, there was a story about a guy holed up in his house looking out the window and the storm surge was driving a LOCOMOTIVE right at his home!

The Redline Report (http://host.madison.com/sports/blog/article_b34c28dc-b16c-11e0-a980-001cc4c03286.html) ranked DU's recruiting class #3 behind North Dakota & Miami. DU usually doesn't do that well in the Redline rankings, which assess the NHL potential of the recruits down the road. That being said, after the rankings came out 1st round picks #15 (NYR) JT Miller went major juniors instead of NCAA & Miami's #20 (PHX-WIN) Connor Murphy did the same thing.

That would be like DU losing either Joe Colborne, Beau Bennett or Scott Mayfield. Its a big loss for your recruiting class and should propel DU to #1 in the INCH recruiting rankings.

Losing Murphy was a bigger blow than just in the class rankings. Miami will lose three of its top six defensemen after this season. Maybe it would be considered naive to think Murphy would have been on campus for more than a year, but he could've helped provide elite depth. Fortunately, the pipeline is by no means bare as Miami continues to demonstrate success on the recruiting trail as they have on the ice over the past 10 years.

yeah baby yeah!!! In the Irene front, nothing yet aside from rain. The wind should start around 4:00 pm. Can't wait to go down to the docks and watch the action! It has been downgraded to a Tropical storm, plenty of punch though. Hope I made the right decision not to haul!!!

DU 78, how are you doing? What's up where you are?He and his family lost power on Long Island at 8:30 AM Sunday. Luckily they had several days to prepare.

It usually takes three days to two weeks to get power back but one thing about this hurricane which is unusual is that the areas that lost power are so widespread since the storm ran up the coast as opposed to making landfall in a concentrated area.

Power companies from around the USA send crews in.

Part of it is just pure luck and where your residence is on the grid. One time in Omaha we had an early, wet snow that tore down thousands of trees and put half the town in the dark. I got my power back later that day, in time to watch the World Series. Friends of mine had to wait two weeks and more.

Just got my power back about 3 hours ago. Lots of wind but not as much rain as was expected. More rain was on the western side of the storm which pelted New Jersey where there are major flooding problems. The eye made landfall on Long Island about 10 miles west of my house early Sunday morning. We lost power about a half hour after the landfall. We had high winds through most of the day yesterday. Cleaned up lots of leaves and small branches but I didn't have any big limbs or trees fall on my property. Lots of trees down in the neighborhood which pulled down the wires. Supposedly 90% of the people that lost power on Long Island will get it back by Friday. The last 7 days are one for the record with an earthquake and hurricane all within a week.

Glad to hear the East Coast contingent survived!

SoCal has been broiling, but, (knock on wood) no earthquakes or major fires.

BTW, good job on the announcement of the new recruits on http://denverpioneers.com
