Its that time of year. The time where we can start forgetting about the brutally cold days and look forward to the terribly hot ones. Snowman's Ice Cream Stand is now open.

I love this time of year. Sure, there is still snow on the ground. Sure we may still get some frost on the windows in the morning. But its almost springtime. The clocks are shifting forward this weekend, and while the negative hour of sleep may be a horrible thing. At least the Capital Regions favorite ice cream stand is opening its sliding windows for people of all ages to get soft serve.

For me its nostalgia that will always bring me back for more to Snowmans. I went there as a kid being that I only grew up a measly few blocks away.

They open today for the season. What's your go-to cone?
