As we're having one of the worst winters ever in the Capital Region, what should we do with all of this snow!? These two knuckleheads in Minnesota have a proposal, they call it "Snow Swimming".
On second thought, I think I'll just stick to drinking a lot of beer inside while watching the weather through the window...
I was doing my nightly sports research on Monday evening when watching the Rex Ryan press conference from earlier in the day.
The New York Jets head coach mentioned in his opening statement, "Apparently snow’s coming tomorrow."
I paused for a second...
Have you heard we're getting a storm? We haven't had much winter in the past two years so any storm delivering any amount of snowfall gets people all excited. We're expecting a pretty big storm though and many schools decided to close ahead of the storm. Our list of closings is continually updated as is our real time weather.
We're going to keep you updated every time there is a change in information or new information about Sandy as she approaches the Albany area. Please keep checking back and refreshing the page to display the latest information.
Gov Cuomo has just announced that the Tappan Zee Bridge near New York City will close at 4PM today (10/29) due to the high winds associated with Sandy. If you're wondering about any possible bridge closings in the Albany area, New York State has a twitter account setup that will display information about bridges across the state. If you don't have Twitter, you can follow along here:
For Albany area residents there is a touch of a silver lining with Sandy as the National Weather Service in Albany has stated that we should see more wind rather than rain when Sandy hits late Monday and early Tuesday. Irene dumped around six inches of rain on the area but Sandy is expected to only bring between one and two inches.
