We had a HUGE snow storm last weekend! Our town got about 21 inches (53 centimeters) of snow. In fact, because we got so much snow and the winds were over 35 miles per hour, the storm was categorized as a blizzard!
Since the roads were so slippery and a lot of places lost power because of the winds, we had snow days (no school!) on Friday and Monday and a delayed opening on Tuesday.
Snow days are one of the most exciting things about winter in Connecticut. The students (and teachers!) get a surprise day off.
In this post we are going to share some of our thoughts and experiences from the blizzard.
During and after the blizzard we took pictures of what it looked like at our homes. Then, when we finally got back to school we talked about our experiences and wrote some descriptive paragraphs about the blizzard.
Here is a slide show with our writing and pictures from our snow day, blizzard experiences:
