Dear Long Islander,
It’s a little cool right now, and after yesterday’s showers we’re still looking at a more wet weather today with a chance of rain through tomorrow, but Sunday should put a smile on everyone’s face. Not only does the forecast call for sunny skies and warm temperatures to cap off the weekend, but it is also Mother’s Day! There are a lot of great ways to celebrate this special day and, while breakfast in bed may be a tempting idea, perhaps the weather will provide a good excuse to have a delicious brunch outdoors. There are many other great events and things to do happening around Long Island as well, so be sure to check them out!
