The Week in Review - Hot and Cold

Good morning from Maine where there is a light coat of snow on the ground with more snow in the forecast for this afternoon. I love this time of year in Maine! Earlier this week I was in Atlanta for three days for the Georgia Educational Technology Conference where there was no threat of snow as it was a good 50 degrees warmer than it was at my home in Maine. GaETC was a great event. Thank you to everyone who came to one or more of presentations. And a special thank you to Clint, Todd, Steve, Ashley, and Carrie who took me to experience Atlanta culture away from the conference center.
