However, Will took this photo after he left Infantes in January, while he was driving across the United States on his way to his new home in Eugene, Oregon. The photo was taken between Council Bluffs and Iowa City, Iowa. Will thought that the landscape there looked similar to Castile-La Mancha. What do you think?
Both Iowa and Castile-La Mancha are agricultural and have high plains or plateaus that are good for capturing wind energy. Remember that before vacation, we talked about the 50 (nifty) United States? Can you find Iowa on the map?Judith

In traditional weather lore, if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and cannot see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If the groundhog sees its shadow because the weather is bright and clear, it will be frightened and run back into its hole, and the winter will continue for six more weeks.

I am sending this message from the United States. I arrived safely on Friday, December 18th after a 7½ hour flight from Madrid. I spent one night in Madrid on the way from Infantes. I enjoyed seeing all the Christmas lights and decorations there.
Now I am in Connecticut and the weather is cold. This morning it was 23 degrees Fahrenheit. Do you know what temperature that is on the Celsius scale?
(Hint: 32 degrees F = 0 degrees C)
We are expecting a big snowstorm later today (Saturday). We could get as much as 2 feet of snow.
Do you know how many centimeters that will be?
(Hint: 1 foot = 30.48 centimeters)
There are going to be very high winds, too, maybe up to 35 miles per hour.
Do you know how many kilometers per hour that will be?
(Hint: 1 mile per hour = 1.6 kilometers per hour)
This type of storm is called a BLIZZARD.
