Blog Photo - NHL Tim Hortons Classic at Vancouver leads the wayThe NHL has continued with the tradition of outdoor games and has, in fact, expanded on it.  Up here in Canada, while winter still is the norm, Tim Hortons sponsors the Heritage Classic in Vancouver, where the Canucks take on the Ottawa Senators.  If you watched last night's game between Pittsburgh and Chicago, you saw snow falling.  Vancouver will have none of that.  In fact, they are playing at BC Place, which is under a dome.  Still, the building of the ice has been a week long process.  

Along with The Classic, we have a day full of sports.  Here's the line-up:  All times Eastern

I'm sure there are more sports on TV today, but I'm a rank amateur at this job compared to Jess, who is house hunting.  Remember to make your bets at the Game Centers, and if you're watching, cheering, jeering or just killing time, Q it up here!

That additional accumulation never came.  It wasn't too bad out yesterday afternoon.  Neighborhood streets were still a little tough today, but I'm only a block from a major thoroughfare, so I don't have much to worry about.

So glad to hear you are okay, and hope all those around you are as well.  This has truthfully been a brutal winter all across the world. Our temps are still in the -30's.

I thought about you pretty much all day, but I left the laptop at home so I couldn't follow the weather, check on here or nothing.  Really hope you are okay.

Work FINALLY notified us it's closed until 3.  We got a layer of ice topped with about 3 inches of snow.  (Another round on it's way bringing another 1-3 inches).  Even after plowing, the interstates are still covered.  Anybody out today will have to pick a lane, any lane.

Since BC place covered the opening in their roof I'm pretty sure that makes it a standard indoor game.  Just as if they were playing the game next door.
Sort of defeats the purpose.  (Yes, I know it was raining but still...)

ANd Christi, please stay safe! I know what that stupid freezing rain/ice rain is like, as we get it here a lot.  #followingonWeatherNetwork

It's headed directly for us.  The worst is supposed to hit about 30 miles south of here, with 8-12 inches of snow.  The ice just started about an hour ago, although the ground isn't getting icy yet.

Crap, you are right in the middle of this sh**.  Not looking good for moving anywhere today or tomorrow :(

Inside warm and toasty getting ready to watch Happy win in Phoenix!

I have the electric fireplace WITH heater going. and a nice fuzzy blanket over my legs.  I'm not really cold, but it is so frosty looking outside, I feel like I should be cold, so making it as comfortable as possible  cheeky

3/2/14   |   Debi_L   |   11868 respect

Oh my.  I don't know if I can handle this.  Kevin leading, Dale Jr in second, and while it is still very early going, both of them look very comfortable.
