I live in Upstate NY. Most people would say there is little, if anything, to do around here but they are wrong. This year I have been doing some freelancing for a local client, as opposed to my many out of the area clients. In doing so, I have been exposed to many different events that have been going on in the area. Here are some examples.
Let’s start off the year by celebrating the New Year.
Once you get the New Year going, there are your local parks to visit. Even in the winter, there are activities.
If you feel inside activities are more for you, you can spend your days baking – as I frequently do as the oven helps take the nip off the house.
Then comes the celebration of various holidays around the area. While I have no photos, there was a wonderful celebration of the Chinese New Year at Binghamton High School. Then, local high schools took to Binghamton University for a regional Science Olympiad competition, with three teams advancing to the state competition.
Sunday was Scout Sunday and a local celebration of 2013 Eagle Scouts. A four county area that is our local council produced 62 Eagle Scouts last year.
And, when all else fails, it is evidently lately that there is shoveling to keep us occupied.
What do you do in the winter?
