"Nor’easter Wedding"

Dr. Alicia Wasula, CCM – Albany, New York Area

Published: February 8, 2023

On our wedding day, December 30, 2000, there were two meteorologists at the altar, twenty-three in attendance, all with their faces glued to the back windows of the church because there was a raging snowstorm going on! Albany Airport got 12.3 inches, which used to be in the top-10 all-time December snowfalls until it got bumped out in recent years by two blockbuster 18-or-so inch events in 2019 and 2020!
