CHEERS - To Old Man Winter. Is it cold enough for you? We're sure you have been asked or asked others that question during this past week of subzero temperatures accompanied with wind and snow. This type of weather is not a bad thing in our area. It's winter and we live in the great Northeast. Cold and snow should be expected and welcomed. Many businesses and events rely on wintry weather conditions each year. For example, this weekend, our community will host thousands of ice-fishing enthusiasts and spectators on the Great Sacandaga Lake for the Walleye Challenge fishing tournament, which needed cold weather to freeze the lake.
