Ron Burgundy would say, "kind of a big deal."
After freezing rain late Friday, the worst part of this winter storm came rolling through Saturday with about nine inches of snow accompanied by strong winds causing drifting and white-out conditions that would have made Yetis in Nepal cringe.
We were able to get our women's hockey game vs. Bemidji State in, but with on-ice officials unable to make it to Mankato for the MSU vs. North Dakota men's hockey game later in the evening, that game was postponed until yesterday (Sunday, Dec. 12).
In case you were wondering if a postponed WCHA game is unusual, the folks from North Dakota don't think they've ever had a game cancelled or postponed and that program dates back to the 1929 season. The University of Minnesota, by the way, also postponed its men's and women's hockey games from Saturday to Sunday. And our men's and women's basketball teams and our wrestling team, which were in St. Cloud for Saturday competition, ended up spending the night in St. Cloud.
It's great to be a Maverick.
