Remember the Ice Storm of 2008? See Video

In the winter of 2008, we had one heck of an ice storm that hit the Capital Region! Power was out in the majority of the surrounding area and not just for a couple hours, but for some weeks. You were thankful to know someone with a generator and that, maybe the Subway down the street was able to whip up some sandwiches for the family.

Siena College Has New Far Out Addition

When I was a kid, my only dream was to be an astronaut. For Halloween I was the night sky (even though people called me Merlin all night), my science fair projects were always space-related (homemade solar system, space ice cream, the moon), so when I heard about this new addition to a local college, I couldn't tell you how excited I was.

Salt Den In Latham Said To Be Where To Go For Respitory Health Help

Allergies? Yeah, I've got those. Badly, actually.

People usually express after the third or fourth, "God Bless You," that they're done blessing me. It's cool. I'm used to it. In fact, I typically tell them not to bother after the first one because some days, there might be 15 sneezes coming my way at any given moment.

Need a Job? Delivery Could Be An Option For a Panera Location Near You!
