Science on a (bitterly) Cold Day

There aren’t very many good things about -13°. However, this is one of them. After my teeth stop chattering maybe we’ll go out and blow some bubbles.

Let it Snow!


I love winter. 
I love snow. 

For years we lived in New Hampshire where we experienced mountains of the white stuff!  I miss it.

We had a beautiful snowfall on New Year’s Eve and into New Year’s Day.  It’s all gone. Today in the Chicago area the temperature is supposed to reach the upper 50’s. There are thunderstorms in the forecast. 

Thunderstorms…
In Chicago…
In January!

What’s up with that?

A couple of weeks ago I launched my new snow-themed blog template.  I guess it’s just my way of ensuring that I’ll be able to enjoy snow even if the ground in my yard isn’t white!


Another way is to blog about snow….and snowmen. As I took down all the Christmas decorations yesterday, I consoled myself by leaving out a few snowmen.  Maybe they can help keep the feeling alive for a few more weeks…maybe even months.

I’ve also been reading a GREAT book to my little guy.  Have you ever wondered what snowmen do at night??  Wonder no more…this book reveals the unbelievable truth!  Here’s a little glimpse:

…And having two snow white cats doesn’t hurt either!

And just in case you want to see more of the real thing, how ’bout an entire website dedicated to snow pictures???

LET IT SNOW!!!
