Let’s be honest– we ALL have Spring fever right now. Yesterday it was about 40 degrees in Guilderland and that was all most of us needed to get the blood flowing. Spring is in the air– at least it was yesterday. After a cold day today and tomorrow, it should be in the air again. I think I speak for all of us when I say; we are ready for Spring!

Did you never notice how the Spring season gives you a little extra spring in your step? There’s something about being to get outside and feel the sunshine and warm air radiate through you that just brightens up your day. Not only do the days get warmer– they get longer too. The sun stays high in a sky a few minutes longer each day. As the snow melts, the flowers and trees bloom. Suddenly our calendars are filled with bbq’s, festivals, sporting events and more. You can catch up with your neighbor and relax on your deck with your favorite beverage. Spring is the start of about 6 months of warm, fun in the sun, weather. Boy do we need it this year.

There’s an awesome website called: http://www.albany.com/events/  where you can find information on just about every event taking place in and around Albany. Don’t make weekend plans without checking here first.
