Hope all of you are safe. So heartbreaking to see the destruction from the storm.

The National Guard has arrived in Houghton. Hopefully the restoration can continue. So sad to hear of the passing of a young life.
My parents were born in the Copper Country on border towns of Allouez and Ahmeek. The community will rally and I see great things ahead. I would never have believed in a 100 years that the Copper Country could have been impacted by a natural disaster of this magnitude. Please donate if you can.

Clean UP is going well in Houghton. National Guard is here and we are getting help from Ford Motor Company to kids with lemonade stands donating money. Supplies coming in from as far as Missouri. Marquette (our arch enemy in hockey) is sending help. Firefighters from Wisconsin and Minnesota. Locals turning out big time. Saw as explanation on how all ages help clean mud out of basements. Strongest shovel mud into buckets. Next strongest form bucket line to haul it up steps. Next strongest haul it on flat ground to waiting containers. Children run empty buckets back to basement. Anybody with a piece of heavy equipment is out and helping. It's a wonderful feeling community. Teams of little leaguer are playing their nighttime games and then going to work for a couple of hours. Hockey teams out working. Those who can't do heavy work are making sandwiches, organizing work schedules, passing out water, putting together work kits for homeowners. And there is no whining or complaining, or "why us?" stuff going on. I'm just hitting on a little bit of the extraordinary effort going on.

I am going over this seasons schedule and looking at travel possibilities. Am going to make a real effort to make it to Anchorage. Love the trip to Huntsville too and Wisco too.

Are many going to Clarkson? I would love to make that trip - Ann Arbor and Huntsville are as far east as I've been. Also would love to see a huge turnout of Tech fans - show those eastern teams how us western teams travel.

If you're going to Potsdam, hotel accommodations are limited. Eating is good, post game has varied options.

at my age, finding a hotel bed is my idea of postgame. If I really want to epic road trip, I would leave Houghton, drive to Madison, watch games, drive to Huntsville, watch games, drive up to Potsdam, watch games and then long haul it to Tucson. no way. it would have to be Huntsville to Tucson and a flight to Potsdam. is there an airport in Potsdam? or is it a fly and drive?

or do Wisco, Huntsville, Ferris, Clarkson, Tucson. someone stop me. and I'd be traveling with 2 cats and a puppy. yes, stop me. Wisco, Huntsville, a flight to Clarkson makes more sense. Are we doing the full on push to Clarkson, pep band going, Misfits, alum??

Postage stamp airport. Nearest major airport is Ottawa. You can fly to Ogdensburg or Massena, but neither airport has rental cars.

US major airports are Syracuse or Albany.

We're both Tech. We haven't forgotten Lou Angotti.

Potsdam is an eastern Bemidji minus the lake and large statue.

We used to be (Thomas S.) Clarkson (Memorial) College of Technology aka CCT. It changed to Clarkson U in the 80s, but we're still Techers.

Based on the 100 year storm, I say Clarkson and Anchorage.

I am confirmed for the UMD series to open the season. Now just need to stake a claim to a seat at the KBC for pre-game and the Continental Fire for post-game.

With it being 95 and hot here in Michigan, taking it easy and speculating what Tech's lineup could look like.

F LW C RW
1 Broetzmann Lucchini Gould
2 Bliss Smith Jackson
3 Parrottino Steman Misiak
4 Halonen Reitmeier Beretta

D LD RD
1 Ford Meek
2 Donohue Swoyer
3 Buckley Gotz

1 ? (honestly can argue for all 3, but believe it will be Kero or Jurusik

Not sure if Williamson was not discussed, but just went with the ones discussed on the show.

Not a single comment, I know this was posted on "that day" but seriously not a single comment.......................

We've never played at Clarkson. Anchorage will continue to be on the schedule for the foreseeable future. Should be an easy choice, I think.

One of our posters pointed out that the best option, if you've got extra time and don't mind a bit of mountain driving in November, might be to fly into Albany and stop off in Lake Placid for a day on one end of the drive to Potsdam.

This is the midwest attitude. Do your thing that you need to do, and carry on.

The response has been amazing. Thanks so much to all who have helped. #SISU on Friday there will be a fundraiser at DIGS in Marquette, where donations will go to the Copper Country for every draft and every dog sold. If you’re around Marquette, please stop by.

Clean UP is going well in Houghton...I'm guessing it was unintentional but "Clean UP" (Or maybe Clean U.P.) sounds like a great slogan for the recovery effort. Glad to hear things are making progress in the right direction.

I'm planning to make the Clarkson trip based on "who knows when Tech will ever play there again..." I plan to fly into Albany, NY and then depending on the weather either do a day of skiing in Vermont (would be ify that time of year) or spend the day in Lake Placid being a tourist before heading up North for Tech hockey.

My other trips for this season will be to Houghton for the Duluth series for sure (which is also MTU parents' weekend so lodging is tough to find) and then maybe the Bemidji road series if one of those games goes outdoors or maybe the GLI to see the new Pizza Palace. If those two don't pan out then maybe I'll pick somewhere else or hold off and hope for another playoff run road trip.

I'll hit Wisco and Huntsville for sure. Then see if I want to fly back for Clarkson. Or Anchorage.

I'm hoping to make it up to Houghton for at least one game of each home series - bith UMD games for sure. Other than that, GLI and Clarkson are at the top of the list.
