Sharks suffer another ugly loss, but do not want to see major changes

first_imgBOSTON — The Sharks never really gave themselves a chance Tuesday night against the Boston Bruins, losing 5-1 at TD Garden to bring an unceremonious end to a five-game road trip and one of the uglier opening months of the regular season in recent team history.Martin Jones, under siege for most of the night, had 36 saves as the Sharks finished with the road trip with a 1-3-1 record and ended the month of October at 4-8-1.Continuing a nearly season-long problem, the Sharks had to kill five …last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast – December 16, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have more precipitation moving across Ohio today, but we are going to see a few hours worth of break in the action into early afternoon. Wave number one developed back into late yesterday and overnight, and is winding down this morning. Wave two comes this later this afternoon through the night tonight. The second wave looks to stay a little farther south, but still will be able to put down decent moisture from US 30 southward. We still see warm air aloft, but likely have trouble completely ridding ourselves of a colder pocket near the surface. So, that means we can see rain or wet snow flakes, or even both later today. This can bring minor additional accumulations of wet snow in central parts of the state up to US 30, while areas in far southern OH likely see more liquid from the system. The good news is that moisture is relatively minor. Liquid equivalent precipitation totals will be a few hundredths to half an inch max except for far southern Ohio where action lingers through tomorrow morning. There we can see closer to another inch total.Tomorrow starts with clouds, but we see those breaking up in the afternoon. We can even see some sunshine before the day is through. Partly to mostly sunny skies expected for the rest of the week, Wednesday through Friday. We will be cold for Wednesday and Thursday with temps well below normal, and then see some moderation on Friday.A few snow flurries may pop up Saturday morning, but otherwise we expect a mix of clouds and sun for the balance of the weekend. Temps climb to above normal levels. Next week looks dry Monday and Tuesday but temps pull back a bit. Then for Christmas day on Wednesday, we cant rule out a few sprinkles or flurries, but right now the biggest threat of action stays west of the state. Honestly, the biggest precipitation threat for the next 1o days is upon us right now, starting late yesterday and getting out of here by tomorrow morning. The map at right shows moisture potential for the combined next 10 days, and pretty much all of it comes here in the next 24 hours.last_img read more

Job Sites in Maine, Part Three

first_imgTo end my three-part report on my trip to Maine, I’ll describe my visits to two new energy-efficient homes — an elegant home in Freeport, and a compact 1,000-square-foot home in Bath.The Freeport home was designed by architect Chris Briley and built by Dan Kolbert. Since the owners of the home haven’t moved in yet, the rooms are still empty of furniture.Most aspects of the home’s thermal envelope are very well detailed. The basement walls are insulated on the interior with R-etro System foam — 4 1/4-in.-thick EPS rated at R-18. The 12-in.-thick above-grade walls are framed with double rows of 2x4s and filled with dense-packed cellulose insulation (R-44), and the insulated sloped ceilings contain 16 in. of dense-packed cellulose (R-60) in unventilated rafter bays.The weak thermal link in the envelope is the windows. Instead of triple-glazed windows, the owners chose double-glazed double-hungs from Bonneville. The 2,600-square-foot home ended up with a design heat load of 50,000 Btuh; according to REM/Rate, it has a HERS Index of 36.Chris Briley prepared a spreadsheet for the owners to compare several space heating options. The installation costs on the spreadsheet ranged from $20,519 (for a propane boiler and a solar domestic hot water system) to $61,908 (for a propane boiler, a PV array, and a large solar thermal system providing DHW and some space heat). The system chosen by the owners — a Viessmann wall-hung propane boiler and a large solar thermal system providing DHW and some space heat — cost $38,325.Space heat is distributed through in-floor radiant tubing in thin concrete slabs poured over wood-framed floors. The home’s total projected annual energy cost for electricity (at 15¢/kWh) and propane (at $2.50/gal.) is $2,085.The last house I visited in Maine was on a wooded site on a hill in Bath, where… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.
