The Week in Review - Here Comes That (Freezing) Rainy Day Feeling Again

The only way to navigate
my road today.
Good morning from ice-covered Woodstock, Maine. Like a lot of the country we've alternated between epic cold and freezing rain for the last couple of weeks. With an occasional snow storm thrown in for fun. I actually love the snow storms, I hate the ice storms. How icy is it? My dogs and I came in from our walk this morning covered in ice. And earlier this week my friend Walter complained that "all these tar patches are messing up my ice road driving."

Wherever you are and whatever the weather is this weekend, I hope that you have a great, relaxing weekend. If part of your weekend includes getting caught up on reading your favorite blogs, take a look at this short list the most popular posts of the week on Free Technology for Teachers.
