Dear Children -
Yesterday morning (Monday, March 2) I was in Boston and was planning to visit the classroom of Sofia Hart's students. Ms. Hart is my daughter and she teaches 3rd Grade at a public school in the Boston area. For several weeks I have been receiving wonderful comments on my blog from many of her students and I was looking forward to meeting them in person.
But along came the Boston Snow Storm and classes were cancelled. I tried to get a bus back to Pennsylvania but the buses were also cancelled. South Station was full of people trying to get a bus to New York City and other places but the buses weren't traveling due to inclement weather. Finally at 2:30 in the afternoon a company that I never heard of decided to start putting its buses back in service and I was able to get to New York and from there to Pennsylvania.
This kind of weather, cold and windy with lots of snow, makes it easy to forget that global warming is a problem. We have to remember the bigger picture of the weather all around the Earth, not just where we are.
I'm so sorry I didn't get to meet the students in Ms. Hart's class. I hope all of you will continue to follow my blog and write comments to me. In addition to my daughter, I have a son who lives in the Boston area. Today he suggested that I tell you about a website about global warming for children. Here it is - maybe you would like to check it out:
I'm leaving on Thursday to go to Texas where I'll start my trip this coming Sunday afternoon.
