“Oh give me a home…where the buffalo roam…” Wait, where’s Buffalo?
By Friday evening, New York forecasters say Buffalo may be hiding under as much as seven feet of snow. As of now, kickoff is still set for 1 p.m. Sunday EST (8 a.m. HST) between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets, if…and it’s a big IF…they can clear the field and at least enough of the stands to allow people to sit in seats that will likely be different than the seat number on their tickets.
On top of the chilly predicament – or perhaps better phrased, “under it” – if the snow should melt on its own there will be a chance of local flooding. Even the governor is getting into the act. NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo says playing the game would be “impractical.”
So why report on such a frozen hot mess as this from 6,000 miles away? “Lucky we Live Hawai’i!”
Read the entire puzzling conundrum narrative here. Then settle back into your Tommy Bahama beach chair and gaze across the channel at Moloka’i, or Lana’i, or Kaho’olawe, or Molokini, or…anywhere but whatever’s on the other side of Lake Eerie.
