Many thanks to the fine folks at East Elementary in Waukon. I was able to visit with the 5th graders again this year. We talked about the tsunami that hit Japan and saw how much power there is in nature. We also talked about severe local storms and tornadoes. The students were very good listeners…and they had (as always!) some excellent questions.
During my visit I was happy to meet Mr. Harvey Estebo, one of the teachers at East Elementary. Mr. Estebo knows how difficult it is to forecast the weather in Northeast Iowa…so to help me in my job he gave me my very own Weather Rock. What a guy that Harvey is! He also included a sheet of insturctions on how to use the Weather Rock. For example, if there is a shadow under the rock, it is a sunny day. If the rock is wet, it is raining. If the rock is swinging wildly, it is very windy outside. Mr. Estebo claims 100% accuracy with the Weather Rock. Hey, I’ll take whatever help I can get! Thanks, Harvey…you made my day!
