Weather Alert

Thunderstorms & Poor Drainage Flooding Possible Today

While an isolated instability shower will be possible this morning, the bigger concern is for the storms that develop during the afternoon. While the overall threat for severe weather appears relatively low, one or two storms could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly very heavy rain. If heavy rain persists, or if multiple storms move over the same area, then low lying areas, and poor drainage locations, could experience flooding. A second round of late night storms may be possible, but the rain should clear off to the East after midnight.

August 23, 1969 - End of summer playground

Updated: Friday, August 23 2013, 06:35 AM EDT
On this day in our history back in 1969,  Schenectady used to have a portable playground for the end of summer.
   
Reporter Carmen Holloman told us city officials wanted to make sure all kids got a crack at playing on the playground.

Then parks and rec director William Eddy said the unit gave the parks and rec department flexibility.
   
The portable playground had ping pong tables, a volleyball net, game tables, and the back of the trailer could be used as a stage complete with a sound system and lights for young performers.
   
No word how long the portable playground lasted.August 23, 1969 - End of summer playground
