Brrrrrrrr

This just in: it's cold. Shortly before 8 am the temperature at ALB hit -4. And weather stations around the region were reporting temps in the negative teens in spots to the north and northeast of Albany.

(By the way: the technical term for this sort of weather is "snot freezer." Don't let anyone tell you differently.)

The forecasted high for Thursday: 23 degrees. Friday, the start of a heat wave: a high of 36, with temps in the 30s through the 7-day forecast.

I'm guessing that we will not have the winter we did last year.

One of my eyes froze shut walking to work at about 9am.

This is called "winter." It's one of the four seasons we enjoy in this part of the world. I'm looking forward to more snow and sub-zero temperatures.
