Day 3.019: Cold and spicy

Wow it was cold today! When I got in from seeing the girls onto the bus, I put the local weather on which was saying that the temperature was 8 degrees, feels-like -8 degrees (due to wind-chill). That's -13°C feels like -22°C for you those who like Celsius and flippin' cold for everyone.

Work was fine today, I got a fair amount done and we went out for very good Indian food at Karavalli in Latham at lunchtime. We've been a few times and it's always good, but their lunch buffet was particularly good today I thought. Nice range of dishes and all that I tried were at least good - some were great.

None of which has anything to do with this Red-bellied woodpecker which I photographed a few days ago, but I was quite pleased with this shot.

P.S. We were expecting a thirty degree swing in day-time high temperatures this week. It turns out that the swing from Monday to Friday was more than forty degrees!


  1. Wow, what a photo!

    I've never been to Karavalli. Would you recommend it to all Albany readers, including vegetarians for instance?

  2. Thank you.

    I've only had regular menu items once - we had take-out and it was the best I've had locally. The lunchtime buffet is always good (I've been three or four times), but it was especially good this time and very vegetarian friendly (restricted choice of course, but they definitely cooked nice vegetable dishes and there were at least four or five available.
