Earlier this morning I went out to clean up the driveway. It was 12°F and I needed to rearrange some of the 15 1/2″ inches of fresh snow that fell yesterday. It only took a little more than two hours. I did snowblow for more than 1 mile, and I’ll have to do some more work on it later. But the cars are cleared and the driveway is driveable, more or less. This time of the year, the sun is higher in the sky so that should help my effort.
Honestly, I do enjoy the cool fresh air and the workout that is built into the effort. It has been a beautiful morning.

Mettlesome and gritty are a pair of words that come to mind when I look to describe the Bow Falcons in their game this afternoon. See, Bow entered the tournament as the #2 seed, and they owned an awesome regular season record of 15-2-1. As these kind of things often work themselves out, the pair of losses for Bow came at the hands of this afternoon’s opponent, the Keene BlackBirds. Bow lost to Keene 3-0 just before Christmas, and then they lost again, 5-3 in mid-February. In today’s Division II State Championship game, the #1 BlackBirds (18-0) looked to remain undefeated, and cap their perfect season with their first ever hockey title. Though, as we have learned over the years, in sports, and in rivalries, it is very difficult to beat a good opponent three straight times, especially in the same season. Today was no different.

The Rinks at Exeter, Exeter, NH – 03/08/17
Mumbled and garbled audio aside, the atmosphere in Exeter was electric. The Bow student section was in place early. The Windham throngs seemed to show up at exactly the same time. Keene packed their side with orange and black. St. Thomas showed their various blues. Before long the seats were full. The areas all around the glass where people were allowed to stand, were accounted for. The crowds for all of the Final Four teams were loud, present, and noticeable. Despite my hometown Grizzlies being absent from the semifinals, it was fun to watch some good high school hockey. Storylines run in every direction when there are a few of us, or more, gathered at events like these. Then, there comes the time when the game is played, and legends are born. Continue reading
