It may not snow here, but we've had our share of weather changes the last few weeks.
January began with chilly weather, but within a week the kids were out raking the leaves in shorts and t-shirts! A week of heavy fog followed, with the sun peeking out for just an hour or two in the afternoon.
This week it's windy and rainy -- very rainy for these parts, where the littlest sprinkling of water is considered news.
So, what better time to do a little weather experimenting?!
We followed these instructions (mostly) to create our own Fog in a Jar. I haven't found gallon canning jars, so I used quart-sized jars, which I have in plenty, and sandwich bags instead of gallon bags for the ice. That way each boy could do his own experiment.
It worked! Fogerrifically!
