Washington Park

A few more pics from Washington Park are after the jump. The ice brought down some pretty big parts of trees.

If you have some interesting pics from the storm, we'd love for you to post a link to them in the comments or send them along: editors |at| alloveralbany |dot| com.

Wow! I went out of town for 2 days, and the weather gets all interesting over in Albany. I love a good storm.

Friend sent me these photos from All Over Albany. I'm a past resident that lived off New Scotland Ave. Was in Albany this past October for 35th high school reunion. Miss the change of seasons but I don't miss the ice storms. It was around 70 today in South Florida.

The Kim has some nice pics, as usual.

Flick users unite :) Feel free to contribute to your local groups, Albany, NY, and Center Square, Albany, NY. Thanks!

A bunch of my friends from school went around last night and took a bunch of pictures of the RPI campus. One of them posted a couple up on Facebook. Here are a couple, and apologies for the unwieldy links:
