Winter, finally

capital hills leap day snow

Capital Hills in Albany, at the back of the old course.

This procrastinating winter got lucky -- if this wasn't a leap year, it would have totally blown the deadline for getting a respectable snowfall in before the end of February.

The official snowfall total for Wednesday was 4 inches (it sounds like a lot places got more than that), a record for the date -- of course, there aren't that many February 29s on record. [NWS]

There's another 4 inches or so in the forecast for Thursday.


Saint Rose is excited about the snow, too!

I love that photograph! While I always love the photos on AOA, this one really hit the spot today.

I can't say that I welcome the snow, but my snow tires are happy to have something other than clear road... ;) I suppose it had to happen sometime... =D

Beautiful photograph. Thanks AOA.

... the Helderberg neighborhood is fabulous for Trick or Treating, maybe too much so. We always see families coming from other parts of Albany by the van load - being dropped off at one end and working their way to the other. Lots of houses in friendly neighborhoods = a packed and good time. It is also rumored that a few adults dress up and roam the streets handing out adult beverages to other adults. Again, just a rumor...
