Morning Free Association 4/5/16



Good morning, I think.


Morning Alf

The Bruins are still trailing the Red Wings and Flyers by a point.


Carolina Whalercanes tonight. Should be an easy two points if the Bruins show up for the game before it’s halfway over.


What’s on tap?

Greetings from the Washington to Boston Amtrak train! Lovely weather in New Haven.

I was at the Isles-Tampa game last night. Pretty good stuff, Seven goals, one fight. Johnny Rocket scored one. And the home team has won 100% of the nhl games Ive been to, so that bodes well for Thursday .

BTW, can’t seem to find where to log in !!

Login should be below the twitter feed – lower right on desktop, very bottom on mobile devices.

Considering I bought the tix in October I couldn’t have picked a bigger match! Of course, if I’ve flown 4000 miles to watch the Bs miss the playoffs it’ll be, hmmmm, disappointing?

Nah, not gonna happen, stay positive!

She’s in California. What is this “water” you speak of?

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

Their snowpack in the Sierras is back up to 85% of historical levels. I think the drought is over.

Miss Muse

The Sierras are way the fuck away from us, DHG. I think that’s a technical term. grin Summer’s coming anyway so even if we were headed in the right direction in terms of water retention, it’s all going to go away soon enough.

Negative. Southern California reservoirs are still low and the groundwater reserves are going to be fucked for a good long time. And that’s assuming that assuming the severe dry weather doesn’t return once El Nino packs up it’s bags and leaves (hopefully taking this bizarre winter with it).

I fucking love El Nino. That lil fucker is welcome every winter around here!!

DrHandgrenaid

Effectively permanently. When you drain down an aquifer the newly vacant pore space either collapses or gets infilled with mineral cement and the aquifer is gone.

My main point was that, as the principal source (ultimately) of most of the water used throughout California, the severity of the drought (that included snowpacks of approximately 0% of historic levels this time last year) is certainly mitigated in the near term

Neither do I, in spite of having just had 4 days off. Or maybe because of it.

Good Morning All! Feeling great! I should, after sending Jo to work I went back to bed and slept for a couple hours. Stuff is sorta melting. I’m hoping the snow stays until Thursday’s rain. Combined they might bring local rivers up.Single game tonight. Jo is running the clock and I’m working with my kid. Life is good!

How’s your squirrel friend doing?

I have a girlfriend and a squirrelfriend.

A no show so far today, but Schwartz will be by. So, Schwartz is a female and a mama. I was cutting up a felled tree the other day and found her nest. I stopped the saw and she came straight away. She moved them to another tree really quickly. I think there were four. I got a good look at two of them. One black, one grey. Wish I had a camera because they were super cute!

DrHandgrenaid

I’m quite glad to hear Schwartz didn’t forget about drey.

Miss Muse
Editor

I saw you mentioned finding a squirrel’s nest but I didn’t put it together it was Schwartz’s nest! smile

Miss Muse

Uh wow, are we all repeating ourselves 8 times?

I haven’t played hockey since March 10th. Charlotte has some decent pick up on Saturdays, but they cancelled their pickup this weekend!

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin
Member

UPDATE! The cancellation was for stick and puck only! Playing this weekend with my bro and a good buddy!

Satan 81's Sister

But don’t you need sticks and pucks to play hockey?

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

Shit! That’s why I struggled last season.

We have an over 40 league starting in two weeks. Sunday nights. I’m pumped.

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin
Member

IF I don’t move to Raleigh, I will start my summer league in early May. Most of the guys are in the 40s. A local bar sponsors the teams so we all get matching jerseys and socks!

BTW, red helmets only worth with red or white uniforms. Why did I buy a red helmet?

Long-Winded Striped Mofo

Long-Winded Striped Mofo

Black or white helmets only. You can have them painted, but to do it right is expensive. I had a friend with an auto body shop do my ref helmet a very glossy jet black. It looks sick.

Long-Winded Striped Mofo

Long-Winded Striped Mofo

Yup, I had my black helmet painted black … the new black.

MadScientist72

So, you’re saying it’s orange?

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

That’s hilarious!

I think the cost of getting my helmet painted would be the same to buy a new helmet. I bought the helmet “used” but it was still in the box. It’s a Bauer IMS 11.0. New it’s $160, but I paid half that. Someone gave me a cage for free and I was set.

So that’s why I bought it! It was CHEAP.

Morning all.

Tuesdays.

Blah.

I could never get the hang of Tuesdays. Shit that’s Thursday isn’t it?

DrHandgrenaid

Yes, the quote is Thursdays

Miss Muse

I always thought that was Tuesday.

Julien says Colin Miller is in tonight and Dennis Seidenberg is out. Decision on Kevan Miller will be made later. #NHLBruins

No Seids, Chiller a go, Kevlar unknown. One assumes Trotman if Kevlar can’t play, and that Quaider is good to go.
