Recent Doings!

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

For Thanksgiving, wifey and I went to my sis’s daughter’s place, for a family gathering over in Avon CT. We returned to Queensbury the next day, to take-in an Adirondack Phantom’s hockey game Sat. night, and a Tony DeSare, “Home for the Holidays” concert at The Wood Theater in downtown GF on Sunday afternoon. It was a great 4 days of visiting, food and fun with fam.

Weather for the Week of 11/7

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Tuesday and Wednesday’s weather is a real pleasure to get this late in the fall. I could have used the dry weather we’ve been getting of late back in August, September and October when I was flying, or should I say, trying to fly between the rain drops. Oh well, such is life in the north-country. I guess, there is always next year? Later in the week and next week, the weather looks to get back to our usual for this year, wetter than normal-maybe?

Weekend Weather and Thing To Do

Friday, November 4th, 2011

The weekend weather forecast looks cool and sunny, with no rain forecast until well into the next week. While I can’t help you with balloon rides this weekend, there still are things to do in the area. Lake George is fairly quiet at this time of year, with many of it’s offerings no longer open. Yet, there are many good places to shop and dine this time of year. You have the factory outlets off exit 20 of I-87. Three of my favorite local restaurants are listed 1, 3 & 4 in this tripadvisor post. You have to add Bistro Leroux to the local good eats list. Saratoga Springs remains lively with many fine restaurants, minus its summer racing scene, and is a short drive down 87; plus Lake Placid is about an hour and a half north up I-87 and Rt 73. Hiking in the woods may not be a great idea, since hunting season now is open in the northern zone, which includes Lake George north into the Adirondacks. You can get an idea of things to do from a fairly complete list of goings-on from Lake George to Saratoga Springs on the web site. Enjoy your time in the area.
