During the ski season, skiers anxiously check their computers to see how much snow accumulated during the night! The "Pow Cam" puts smiles on peoples faces!
Last night's storm gave us foot of snow...the ski bums are smiling! One last powder day before the ski area closes in 10 days!
Teachers can predict snow, too. We don't need to wait for the pow cam. When a big low pressure system moves in, the students talk more, move more, listen less, and energy is high. We have 18 barometers in our classrooms at all time...who needs Al Roker!
The snow report is a Slice of Life from any ski area! Diehard skiers will be in the lift line to catch the first chair so they are guaranteed fresh tracks. For me, I will be standing in the snow at recess duty as I daydream about it melting and the wild flowers blooming!
