Here we are at the end of april. We’re finally getting the good old April showers in the Albany area.

We really do need the rain. This time of year I start thinking about what to do when I take a vacation during the summer. Because last week gave us some warm temperatures, and now it’s rainy and chilly, I really can’t wait until vacation time.

With gas prices as high as they are, I think a lot of people will not be planning a vacation, but a stay-cation and staying closer to home. By the way, I had a story or two last year about some places that you can go to get away for the day, and they’re close to home. Take our poll about your plans.
