There’s so much to anticipate before a season-opening game, it just doesn’t seem fair to focus on one spot.Read More
If anyone tries to tell you that “there is no such thing as TOO MUCH of a good thing”, you can point to the missed opportunity of a major snowfall in the Northeast that is playing out as this week gets underway. You see, the front that moved through the region late this past weekend delivered cold air of arctic origin, and that is normally a good thing for skiers and riders in the Northeast, especially when you get into March when the days are longer and the sun angle higher...every cold day preserves the snow one day longer before the inevitable onset of spring and its’ sloppier surface conditions. This time, however, the front went too far...all the way to the mid-Atlantic region, where it served as a focal point for low pressure to feed off as it moved out of the Tennessee Valley toward the Atlantic seaboard. The cold air banked over New York and New England is getting reinforced by the clockwise circulation around high pressure over western Ontario, and that is helping to suppress the storm track too far to the south to do us any good...this time.
