Next I checked my Twitter page to see what was going on and I noticed Jeff Utecht writing that his classes had been canceled for tomorrow because of snow. His post was at 1:00 A.M. Central time. I was curious about where he was teaching so I did some research. He teaches in China! Here is a link to his blog The Thinking Stick. In 20 minute I traveled from Missouri to Los Angeles to Shanghai, China.
So I guess my question is: Where did you go this weekend?

This graphic is taken from the Fayette County Groundwater Conservation District
The video The Case of the Mysterious Neighbor by the Missouri Botanical Garden says only one-tenth of one percent is usable water. The above graphic says three-tenths of one percent is usable. Why is there such a big difference?
Here is a link to some more interesting information about water from The York Children's Water Festival.

Remember Friday, January 11 you will be expected to create a water cycle diagram using cut paper labeling and defining the seven terms we identified in class: evaporation, condensation, precipitation, runoff, groundwater, transpiration, and water cycle.
