I hope you and your families are doing well. I had a great class in NH last week, meeting up with colleagues from mostly around New England. We went animal tracking in the snow, in 2 degree weather. It’s true what they say, there’s no such thing as the wrong weather, just the wrong kind of clothing. We all sported snow/ski pants and were rewarded with signs of mice, weasels, and porcupine! I really admire you all for bundling up, and doing the same for our little ones – it’s so valuable to see our green spaces in all seasons, and the Pinetum has plenty of evergreens for a colorful visit, year round.
I think it would be helpful to have a small swap shop at the GEC for the cold weather wear we grow out of so fast. I have a perfectly good pair of dark blue kamik snow boots, size 1 to contribute to my growing girls. They might be big for our toddlers, but please consider bringing your share-ables along.
Tomorrow we can expect:
- Cccording to weather.gov for Cos Cob, A chance of snow after 3pm. Increasing clouds, with a high near 33. Wind chill values between 10 and 20. North wind 5 to 7 mph becoming east in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
- We’ll begin in the classroom again, under the citrus trees.
- Ms. Liz is bringing a special snowman craft for us, and we’ll have a snowman story.
- Then mushrooms and caregivers can bundle up and take a little hike outside together. I wonder what those “increasing clouds” will look like in the sky. Do you there will be ice on the pond?
