Weather



We are having all kinds of different weather this month. Last week we had some warm days--up in the 50s--and a lot of snow has melted. This week we're having colder weather again, and alternating between rain, sleet, hail and snow. Today we've had hail and snow so far.



I've been the Bear Cub Scout den leader this year, and this month we worked on earning the Weather pin, which was fun. B helped the boys construct simple weather stations. We made posters about the water cycle, we reviewed cloud types, and we discussed our local climate and potential weather hazards here in Eastern Idaho.



B took some pictures of a moon dog lunar halo earlier this month--supposedly when you see one it will snow. And the next day, there was snow!
