Same Day in March
March 24, 2013
Indianapolis has been experiencing cooler than usual temperatures for the last several weeks. We are all excited and ready for spring but our temperatures have been more winter like. We are usually in the mid 50's as a high temperature this time of year, but we have been hanging around the low 30's for the last few weeks. Then, while we have been on break for this last week, we began to hear about a winter storm heading our way!!! It has hit today, Sunday. We already have about 4 inches and the snow is still coming down hard. All of the schools in our area, including ours, are on a 2 hour delay for tomorrow. That means that school begins 2 hours after the regular start time. This helps give the snowplows a chance to get the streets cleared and this later start time allows us to drive to school in the daylight instead of darkness. This will certainly change our temperatures, etc. for this project, but I bet that we won't be alone. :)
I will post a picture of our spring snow tomorrow.

Well the weather was so BAD, that our school was closed on Monday March 25th. We had 9 and half inches of snow! The weather has warmed up but there are still small piles of snow around. It set a record for the most snow since March 25, 1906!


It is 55 degrees today March 29th. The Easter bunny will not have to hide any eggs in a snowbank!

Story:Picture1.jpg
Our School is located in the capital city of Indiana. We are located in the Midwest and not too far from Chicago.
A nickname for our state is the Hoosier State. Can you guess why? There are many reasons for this nickname. Some say it comes from when people yelled out their door and said Who's Here! Who really knows, but is a fun name.
Our state flag is blue with a torch and stars. indiana_flag_byerin.gifWe are the 19th state to join the union.



We are famous for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Home of the Indiana Pacers and the Indianapolis Colts! Some colleges in our state are Indiana University, Purdue, Notre Dame, and Butler. I bet you have heard of all of them because of BASKETBALL! Hoosiers love basketball.
Our school's color are purple and gold and our mascot is a Panther.

We are all looking forward to Spring Break which is early for us this year! It begins on March 15th. We return to school on the 25th!
