Recent heavy fog and near-zero temps conspired to create interesting frost formations on thistles and other foundations.

  1. Oh I miss the cold! I had a conversation with students this week about snow. Several of them have never seen snow in real life before and I had never really thought about how that is more common than most people would think. When they asked if I had ever seen snow, I couldn’t help but laugh and simply say, “Yes, I have seen LOTS of snow.” 😛

    • Amazing,huh?.Blows me away when I meet people that have never been to the ocean or seen snow. Of course, I’ve never seen a firefly, so that would probably seem pretty weird to your students.
