A sudden change in weather gets locals talking

News

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – It’s beginning to look a lot like winter outside.

With a snowy start to the day, many in the Capital Region are now bracing for the cold months ahead.

A lot can happen in 24 hours, and that is exactly what we all saw here around the Capital Region.

Saturday, the temperatures were very warm, but today (Sunday) it’s cold and snowy and people noticed the difference.

Matson Roberts may be speaking for a lot of us on this snowy day.

“Woke up this morning pretty not happy,” Roberts said.

He’s from Virginia, and snowy, cold weather like this is not something he’s used to.

“Well I thought I was going to die last winter so who knows what will happen this winter,” Roberts said.

A similar reaction was heard by Florida native Mary Denson now living in Albany.

When she looked out her window today, what did she think?

“Run back to Florida,” Denson said.

It was a pretty wild scene this morning when you consider yesterday was sunny and warm.

“We got to put up the Christmas lights in t-shirts.”

Just a day later, it was a whole other story.

“Anytime it snows and stuff, it’s annoying. The roads get icy and slushy,” said Gene Ramos.

Of course not everyone hates the snow.

“I’m fairly adaptable so it’s not too bad,” said Albany resident.

Some folks like Carly Vansycklale wait all year for this.

“Well I love snow so I was excited,” said Vansyckale.

But the apple fell far from the tree as her family, not sharing the same passion for snow as Carly.

Her family says snow is fine for the holidays but by February they start to get tired of it.

Like it or not, more of these cold flakes are probably in our immediate future, so might as well be ready.

Whether it’s a sunny day or a snowy day, you’ve got to make the best of the situation and that’s exactly what people in the Capital Region are doing.
