Crazy weather yesterday, for Maine at least. My daughter is in love this weather! Do you have a weather bug in your home? This week has been full of interesting weather: tracking Bill out in the Atlantic, Severe Thunderstorms yesterday. I had a very *gulp* close encounter with a funnel cloud yesterday. My daughter is apparently unaware of how dangerous they can be --- she thought it was great!
So if you have any weather bugs in your family, check out the following links:
http://www.erh.noaa.gov/er/gyx/
They have a ton of information about all sorts of weather. On the left, you will find some great links. Check out "weather school" learn more about the jet stream. There is even a quiz at the end. Also, you will find wind chill/heat index charts under the "preparedness". And if you see any wild weather in your area, you can report it to the weather service.

Happy Homeschooling!
