We had a nasty, snowy Monday in the Capital Region. And with that in mind, when I got to my car that morning, I spent the necessary time sweeping off all the snow and ice that had accumulated on my car’s roof, rear window, side windows, mirrors, windshield and hood. I drove downtown. Took my…

Season 3 is coming. This is the way.
