Snowmaggedon...Snowpocalypse...call it whatever catchy or silly name you want, there's been a lot of snow this winter.
Except here, it seems. I know my friends from NYC to the Carolinas have gotten a LOT more of "the white stuff" than usual. Their Facebook and Twitter posts have been full of weather commentary.
But Albany has had far less snow than usual. We've only had to shovel our front sidewalk twice this year. All these big storms just miss us or leave only traces.
And, yesterday, in Washington Park, I found buds on some of the trees.
Of course, this being the Northeast, winter isn't over yet. I can remember some huge snowfalls as late as April. It's not quite spring.
