On This Day in Wx History
1831 – The coldest December of record in the northeastern U.S. commenced. Temperatures in New York City averaged 22 degrees, with just four days above freezing, and at Burlington, Vermont the temperature never did get above freezing. The Erie Canal was closed the first day of December, and remained closed the entire month.
The next MM Kids class will be Tuesday, December 7, at 4:00 pm at TCAT. Suggested age range is 8 yrs and up.
This hour-long class focuses on weather folklore. We’ll discuss what works and what doesn’t and why. We’ll also discuss just how complex our planet’s atmosphere is and what that means for folklore. A hands-on activity will make the lesson come to life! Sign up at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeJd9uESXEQKxIxF07Hk0BxcDaCsCpxWHVceM-YqtZzww7y7Q/viewform
