3.25" to be exact! Missouri Valley Christian received this amount of precipitation during our wet, three day stretch this past week. Our third graders head out each morning (regardless of weather...as shown by the photo) to check the gauge and record the amount. By far this was the most received this school year which added a bit of excitement to our room. We also made our predictions as to when Yankton will receive its first, official 3" snowfall of the season. Here they are for the record...Mr. Leonard-November 28th; Mrs. Nelson-December 7; Mary-December 12; Leah-December 17; and Garrett-December 25. Judging by the twinkle in three sets of eyes when the four letter word S-N-O-W is said, I think we are ready and very eager to measure THAT precipitation, too!
