Islanders: Garth Snow’s Most Memorable Trades

In light of the 2019-20 NHL Trade Deadline only being a few days away, I decided to look back on some of Garth Snow’s most memorable trades from when he was general manager of the New York Islanders. While Snow certainly wasn’t liked by many – if any – Islanders fans, he did make some trades that helped shape the beloved team that remains today. Since there were so many trades made by Snow, I will only be showing the five most memorable. #5: Reinhart for a 2015 First and Second-Round Pick ...

How to prepare for avalanches

In January of this year, a 34-year-old skier was killed inbounds at Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Alpine Resort, skiing a piste off of Alpine Meadows’s Scott Chair. That followed another avalanche that trapped eight skiers at Idaho’s Silver Mountain Ski Resort. Tragically, three of those skiers died. We already know that even more skiers and snowboarders are hitting up the backcountry — a reported 1.4 million two seasons ago, with continued exponential growth since then — and that they are putting thems...

Ski resort uses helicopter to bring in more snow

Over the weekend, the Luchon-Superbagnères ski resort in the French Pyrenees used a helicopter to bring in fresh snow to the slopes from higher elevations. The chopper dumped 50 tonnes of snow on the beginner and ski school slopes. From The Guardian: Hervé Pounau, the director of the local department council, said the cost of the operation would be recouped many times over by the business that would have been lost to a lack of snow. “It will cost us between €5,000 and €6,000, in th...

Very Cool Science: Airplanes Landing In Chicago Are Causing It To Snow

With temperatures below freezing and saturated air (high relative humidity) aircraft descending to land can cause snow. It’s a very localized event, not widespread snow, but snow can form and then fall as a result of planes descending under the right conditions. This requires “supercooled atmosphere interacting with exhaust” and “water vapor [that is] below freezing but [that] couldn’t entirely transition into ice crystals because of a lack of particulates upon which to freeze.” Then the plane d...

Morning snow.

Time: 7:23. Actual sunrise time was at 7:21. No visible sunrise today, and the snow was verging into rain. At 33°, it was too hot for the jacket I had on, the jacket that worked a few days ago when it was 8°. You really do have to add 15 or 20° to the temperature to decide what to wear if you're going to run, even if, like me, you only run in an casual, unambitious way.

Hunger Games Prequel Courts Controversy Over Its Choice of Main Character

Readers have been anticipating Suzanne Collins’s prequel to the Hunger Games trilogy since 2019, when the author announced her plans to revisit the dystopic world in a new book. A new excerpt of the upcoming novel, named The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, reveals the prequel will center, at least in part, on a young version Coriolanus Snow. To fans of the books (and movies) that name rings a bell: Snow is the villainous and authoritarian leader of Panem introduced in The Hunger Games, whic...
