WCH Doppler 10,000

There's some sort of expression about the month of March coming in like a lion, but from my window, it looks less like a lion and more like a foot of snow.

The entire state of Minnesota has been hit pretty hard with a big snowstorm that is wreaking some havoc with hockey schedules.

All the high school hockey sectional championships that were scheduled for today were postponed until either tomorrow or Saturday.

You know things are bad when even Duluth is struggling with the weather. Luckily, it sounds like the Badgers had the foresight to get into town ahead of the storm.

North Dakota was able to make it to St. Cloud, though beat writer Brad Schlossman likely won't be making the trip.

I haven't heard anything about Tech traveling to Minnesota, but I'm assuming they made it in fine. In Houghton, they call this Tuesday.

Finally, Minnesota State gets the benefit of not having to play this weekend, so they get to sit at home by the fire and send bad thoughts towards Tech and Wisconsin.

Michigan Tech, which visits Minnesota, also hopped on a bus late Wednesday, leaving Houghton around 9 p.m. that night and getting as far as the Holiday Inn in Eau Claire, Wis., by early Thursday morning. After a few hours with America's Host, the Huskies made it to Mariucci Arena by Thursday afternoon and should face no further delays in their quest for home ice.

Of course Bowling Green travels like they play, and may or may not show up in time for the first round CCHA playoff contest slated for tonight. The were stuck in Des Moines, IA last night, and earlier today. All of the major roads in Iowa are either closed, or travel is not suggested on them due to snow coverage and high winds.
