For Christmas of 2010, we visited Amy’s uncle and aunt and grandma up in Schenectady, NY. This meant flying up to Albany Airport (ALB) in dead of winter on a little regional jet out of Dulles (IAD):
Amy’s uncle is a very avid Harley-Davidson enthusiast, and apparently this is related to the porcine holiday ornamentation on the lawn and in the windows:
The downstairs Christmas Tree looked really familiar:
So did this jolly guy:
And Amy’s relatives gifted me with a way-cool Star Trek (2009) USS Enterprise tree ornament:
We drove down a road which is apparently famous for its Christmas lights:
Unfortunately a huge winter storm threatened Northeastern US travel, so I used a weather voucher to reschedule our flight home a day earlier, cutting our trip short. It turned out to be a good move as we caught the last ALB-IAD flight before days of chaos and cancellations. But not before I got some photos of the ALB Prayer Room, for my collection:
So ended our Schenectady Christmas. We might go back in the summer. Photoset here.
