looking west into the setting snow moon – Wheaton, IL. Wednesday, February 16, 2022 5:09 AM

This week for my W^2 post, I have a snow moon. Every moon has a name and February’s is snow. The moon this morning was 98.2% of the full moon phase with the true full phase occurring later this morning at 10:56 AM. By that time the sun will make observing the moon impossible or the clouds will obscure it, regardless it won’t be visible to the naked eye so, I am thankful to have seen the moon each of the past two mornings when I let the dogs out at 5 AM.

We have snow in the forecast for tomorrow, and I believe my students will be a little excited with the prospect of a snow day on Thursday along with the effects of the ‘snow moon.’ So today’s will likely be an interesting day of learning.

We are still learning about light and every day there is a new reveal, that’s life as it should be. Something marvelous and full of wonder each day, like present.

Today is gonna be an awesome day, I know it and I can feel it, so I’d better jump up, jump in, and seize the day. And also, press publish. Making the Days Count, one day at a time, looking for wonder and sometimes finding it.

What has filled you with a sense of wonder recently?

    1. On our way home from Key West, we stopped at a roadside beach and looked up at the heavens. I have never seen so many stars. Today the wind is howling and piling surf along the beach, back home it is snowing. I know that life is all about balance and nature seeks equilibrium as we all do. Peace.

    1. Fortunately the day was an e-learning day and an additional day wasn’t added to the school year. It’s always good to stay home, but when a day is subtracted from summer break, it isn’t a fair trade. For the most part, the kiddos got their assignments done and I answered e-mails and did some grading without leaving the house. It has been a good year filled with wonder. Stay well. Peace.

    1. I love looking up and seeing the moon. It’s been a joy sharing that wonder and curiosity with my students this year. I am going to be sad on the last day of the year when we call a close to our time together. I will see them next year, but it’s always different when they have moved up and on. Enjoy your day and keep moving. Peace.
