Winter can be a challenging season and the past few week have been extremely cold at times! Over New Year’s Day weekend we spent 84 consecutive hours at or below zero. It’s only the second time we’ve seen that in 20 years! As we get ready for the last surge of winter cold and snow, I’m going to offer 2 winter workshops. There are two date options for each workshop. Date options for workshop #1 are Thursday, January 24th or Friday, January 25th and Workshop #2 options are Thursday, February 1st or Friday, February 2nd. If you attended my October classes, there will be a mix of both some review material from October and also new content, Maybe we’ll even have snow on the ground this time!

You can sign up for one or both of the workshops. The cost for each workshop is $10 per student. More details on class dates and times are listed below. And of course, as we’ll be learning about in class, we may experience some winter weather on these class dates! If we need to cancel any classes, the make up dates will be February 8th and 9th.

WINTER WORKSHOP #1: We’ll discuss why it gets SO cold here and if the weather allows, we’ll try some fun experiments with the cold!

I’ll add my thoughts to whether or not we’ll have 6 more weeks of winter. 🙂We’ll talk about the challenges of forecasting snow and mixed precipitation, including the big ice storm from April 2013.
