the Hardest Thing

Do you want to know what is really bugging me right now? Well, do you?

The weather is what is bugging me right now. How am I suppose to teach a hands on, experiment-filled, activity-based unit study on astronomy when we can't even see the sun, moon, planets, and stars? How are we going to see how the sun's rays fades the color out of paper if there is no sun? How are we going to build and use a sundial when there are no shadows? How are we going to record the phases of the moon when it is hiding behind clouds? How are we going to scope out the constellations, nebulae, planets, and moon craters when the sky is solid black?

Isn't the weather aware that I need its cooperation for the next two or three weeks? Geesh, you'd think it had a mind of its own!
