This is the week

All this week. We hope.

Mother Nature totally cheated us this summer with the weather. In fact, some might say that we didn't even have a summer. And now it feels like Fall in the breeze.

All the more the reason to soak up the weather this week. The forecast looks fantastic. Here's the paraphrased version from the National Weather Service:

This afternoon: Sunny, cool -- high 71.
Tuesday: More sun. Still a bit cool -- high 73.
Wednesday: The sun will shine upon us, the breeze will gently caress our skin and all will seem right with the world.
Thursday: Like Wednesday, but it will feel like angels are kissing our cheeks. Also: dessert will taste sweeter and you will sense a common bond with all humanity.
Friday: Like Wednesday and Thursday, but possibly tending toward hot.
The Weekend: Too good to hope for.

So, go outside this week. Take a day off. Call in sick. We won't tell.


Making tonight a Perfect Night for some Kickball Action! If anyone is interested, probably only a few more weeks before it gets dark too early... 6 o'clock tonight!


you make a wednesday seem like perfection

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
