Indian Summer

The weekend weather perdiction here in Western NY is supposed to be lovely ("Look, ma! No snow!").
Buffalo gets a bad reputation for being such a "snowy" city - it's really not that awful. Buffalo is not a constant snow storm city, we just mainly get freakishly huge flash stroms, where Lake Erie decides collect and dump it's unwanted participation on us. But, when life gives you lemons (or a ton of cold, white fluffy stuff) the only thing to do is snowmobile, ice skate, snowshoe, and dog sled in it!

But, I'm getting waaaay ahead of myself here...the leaves are only just starting to turn.

Today, the Buffalo Sabres have their second offical game of the season. While they are overseas in Berlin playing this game, it's going to get quite rowdy arond these parts. We sure do love our hockey in this city.
Jon and I are going to check out the Pucktoberfest going on at the First Niagara Center (or the FN center - pronounced "effin center" - that's not official. Ha.)
"The festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. in the plaza outside First Niagara Center as the Auslanders, Buffalo’s premier German band, take the stage to perform traditional authentic German music as well as popular cover songs. Dancing to the Bavarian sounds will be the Schuhplattlers, a traditional German dance group from Western New York.

At 2 p.m., fans can head into the arena to watch the Sabres play the Los Angeles Kings in Berlin on the HD video board. The game is part of the NHL Premiere Series and is the second of two games the team is playing during its nine-day trip to Europe."
Woohoo! Indian Summer weather, beer, Sabres can't get any better...actually, it will when I hear Rick Jeanneret call the game.

How's the Fall weather where you are? Participating in any fall festivities?
