Something to warm up with

Recommended Posts

I'm snowed in. I have to go get ready to get gas and snow blow the driveway so my husband can actually make it to the front door - all while managing our son's desire to help. I read this and just thought it was wonderful - not a word I choose lightly - and I felt really good and wanted to share it with you.

On a related note, Lucas is really, really cute.

See it here.

Learning opportunity! Put him to work.

"Without using the snowblower or a shovel (since that's too obvious), how can you clear a path from the door to the car?"

See what he comes up with. I did this with some student volunteers after school, just to see what they would piece together as kind of a real-world engineering puzzle.

Note that I had to stop a student mid-run and say "Don't do anything that will get you or me arrested," to which he replied "...Okay, on to plan B." So make sure you add that caveat.

Back on topic - what a great news story! I could see this turning into a short story or even a serial. (Not by me, though. I've barely got enough time to write one thing, let alone juggle multiple projects.)
