We have had a very dry (brown) winter with very little snow this year.
Thursday, March 5th, was our last day with students before our "Spring Break". I took our students on a walking field trip to find a geocache. It was warm, sunny, and I had to work on keeping them out of mud puddles!
Saturday, March 7th was the Ceremonial start of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in Anchorage - extremely warm temperatures had caused the race organizers to move the official start from Willow, to Fairbanks. I had visions of walks outside during my time off and maybe find a geocache or two.
On Monday, the first "real" day off?
COLD! Bone chilling, the whole week and into the weekend, some days temperatures were below zero!
I could live with that. After all, I live in Alaska and it is still, for us, winter.
But, Mother Nature can be cruel.
Now that we are back in school?
Warm and sunny, with temps above freezing!
