Happy Ground Hog Day!

picture from Christian Science Monitor

It seems impossible to believe, but spring is coming.  Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow and if you"re a believer, you can expect an early spring. (It won't be easy to find under all this snow and ice!)
I am writing in the cozy comfort of my family room next to a blazing fire in the wood stove, while Mr. Lee attempts to push the mounds of snow around outside.  I hope you had some fun in the snow and rested up a bit for the rest of the week.  Hopefully we'll have no more delays or cancellations and can focus on squid, the British colonies, MCAS writing, and solving math problems.  Try this one:
Groundhogs are pretty small animals. Benjamin the groundhog weighs ten pounds seven ounces. Justin the groundhog is younger and only weighs five pounds nine ounces. How much more does Benjamin weigh?
Bring your answer to math class tomorrow!
