Winter skies can be pretty dramatic. High pressure moves to low pressure, all with the earth tilted away from the sun. If you look closely, you can almost imagine the earth's tilt. The slice of blue sky, wedged between snow and clouds is dramatic withthe leaf-less trees punctuating the landscape. The above photo was taken in northwest Greensboro, earlier this week.
In Greensboro, weather has been on everyone's mind. School was held one full day and two shortened days. It has been consistently cold for several days. Water pipes are freezing everywhere. For students, it is really hard to focus when weather events are first and foremost on the mind. Teachers on block schedules are struggling, because, it feels like they are restarting the semester over, and over, and over. If you don't know what we're talking about, watch the movie Groundhog Day on Sunday (Groundhog Day), and enjoy the seemingly repetitive glories of winter.
