Happy First Day of Spring!

It was still pretty frosty this morning at my house.  It's barely 35 degrees.  Will spring weather come soon?

2014 Groundhog Conclusions

On February 2, 2014 the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter weather.  Although we had a few days that reached upper 50s, we definitely had winter weather.  The coldest temperature we recorded with 19 degrees.  The warmest temperature we recorded was 50.  We had little snow, but plenty of rain.  This is typical winter weather for the Seattle area.

We conclude that the groundhog told the truth this year.

Happy Spring!

Right now it is sunny and 42.

I forgot to mention that yesterday there was ice on my windshield and today there was even more.  It may get to 60 today, but it is still more winter than spring.

I know many parts of the country received snow over night.  I think the groundhog told the truth this year.

February 9, 2014 -- SNOW!

Pardon our excitement, but the Seattle area doesn't get snow very often.  We have maybe three inches, but if it's enough to play in, it's deep.

Right now it is 32 degrees.  We are expecting more snow flurries throughout today.  It's supposed to warm up and turn to rain by tomorrow.  Good thing it is Sunday and we don't have school.

For our current conditions at Terrace Park, click here.

Here is a frozen pond about a mile and a half from school.  Yesterday I (Mrs. Bauer) watched some confused birds on their frozen homes.  Today there is snow.  I didn't see any birds.

What did your class decide?

February 4, 2014

Right now it is 30 degrees and overcast.

Welcome to the classes that are participating:

Mrs. Wiersma's class from Darrington, Washington and Mrs. Glock's class from Paramus, New Jersey.  We look forward to comparing weather trends with you.
