Heat wave!!! Whooo-hooo!
Well, everything's relative.
If temperatures that push 30 degrees make you want to get out and do something, you'll find something to do after the jump.
Got something else in mind? We hear sharing keeps you warm.
Whatever you're up to, have a great weekend.

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.
