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!!!

Well. . .

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

Six of the top 12. If Notre Dame and Western Michigan were to join the NCHC, that would eight of the top 12.

Thanks for the great post. I'm naturally delighted with a high pre-season ranking, although you can't put them on a credit ap. And I don't mean to be a cranky old geezer, but what does it take to put a stake through the heart of the g.d. jelly donut? How do we go about making sure everyone understands that's no longer our logo and here's the artwork for our new one? Jeez I hate that.

30 days and counting

And a look at DU's USNTDP players for 2011-12

UNDER 18
Quentin Shore – Denver, Colo. — Draft Eligible in 2012
The third Shore brother to come into the NTDP, he should continue to live up to the family name. Brother Drew was a second-round pick of Florida in 2009, while other brother Nick was selected by the LA Kings in the third round in 2011.
It’s still unclear where Quentin Shore may fit into the 2012 draft, but he’s clearly got the talent to garner interest from a lot of NHL teams. You can usually expect good vision and playmaking ability from a Shore and Quentin’s no different. On top of that is the family’s trademark height.
His brothers didn’t really break out until their Under-18 seasons, so Quentin may follow suit. He has some really solid tools and could make an impact in a whole new way with this Under-18 Team. Both of his brothers are currently playing at the University of Denver,
Edit: And Quentin made his commitment to DU this August.
http://unitedstatesofhockey.com/2011/08/20/2011-12-u-s-national-under-18-team-forwards/#more-1666


UNDER 17
Gage Ausmus – Grand Forks, Minn. — East Grand Forks High School
At 6-1, 185, Gage Ausmus has a good frame to work with. He only played 17 games last season with EGF, but made an impact with 12 points (4g-8a). Not only did he make an impact in the points department in a short time frame, he’s better known for his defensive abilities. The U.S. U17 blueline has average size this year, so it will be important for each defenseman to bring some amount of physicality and toughness against the strong competition in the USHL.
He’s already committed to the University of Denver, which has done a pretty good job with identifying top defensive prospects over the years.
Connor Chatham – Belleville, Ill. — St. Louis Blues Midget Minor
Chatham is one of the many big bodies the U17s went after to fill out the forward lineup. The size up front allows Team USA to get away with a smaller blue line. Chatham was an early commit, but was hurt most of this season.
He’s already committed to the University of Denver, and won’t be draft eligible until 2014. He’s going to bring some grit to the lineup. Pretty good Chatham scouting report from Lets Go DU. http://letsgodu.blogspot.com/search/label/Chatham
