Ms. Sullivan Grade 2 Class reports: "We have had quite a winter so far this year with a little bit of everything!
We did have a lot of snow at the end of December and the first part of January. We really like the snow and we could go sliding, make snowmen and snow forts, snowshoe, ski and go ski-dooing.
It has also been a really, really, really cold winter. There was one week in January that it was so cold that we could not even get outside at recess to play. There were wind chill warnings of between -30C and -35C. We didn’t like that we could not go out to play.
The river was frozen with that cold weather and people were out on it with skidoos and skis and walking across to Beaubear’s Island.
On January 31st, it warmer up to 15C! That is really warm for us at this time of year. Then it rained really hard all day and almost all of the snow we had melted! Our playground is full of ice now.
The groundhog that is closest to us is Shubenacadie Sam in Nova Scotia. He did see his shadow. The legend says we will have six more weeks of winter. It sure feels like winter now. We are back in the deep freeze again. It was -24C today on February 6, 2013 and we have a wind chill warning for tonight and tomorrow with temperatures of -35C -- -40C. There is more snow on the way for Friday and Saturday. Even when the sun is out it is still really cold!
Our class had a discussion and the decision was that everyone thinks we will see the first robin at the end of March. We will keep you posted." When do YOU think we'll see our first robin?
