ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — On a rainy Tuesday like today, I like to sometimes remind myself of the teachings of the Chinese philosopher Confucius, who once said, “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” The weather did not get the memo this morning though, with storms rolling in fast and early.
