Last weekend we had some really amazing freezing rain (which you can read a little about and see more photos of here). When the temps went up a little bit we went out to explore and see the results of the ice storm. It was mild around our house because we are pretty close to the coast but once we ventured out into the world the evidence of some pretty sever icing was seen. While the roads were okay the trees where covered in a very thick layer of ice and many were hanging low under the weight.
In the afternoon we went to the Museum of Natural History. It would seem that my camera is showing signs of age because it does not like the cold much these days. It shut down and waited for a good long time to warm up and turn on again. So the trusty iPhone helped me out at the museum.
Here is a little iPhone tour:
The Museum of Natural History in Halifax is one of our favorite spots in the city. This time around they had an amazing bug exhibit. Those were some really big bugs!
The cool part about the exhibit was that it blended the natural history of the bugs themselves with the art of recording natural history though both artists sketches and 3D models. A small display of how the models were made was very interesting and brought the disciplines together in a fun way. It was very good for my little artist to see how art can be used in a fun and informative way.
We had snow all day yesterday and while the forecast calls for some sun, looking outside I don't believe it at the moment. Nova Scotia is sure doing a good job of making sure we did not miss out on winter!
I will be back tomorrow with another installment of the Make & Listen Along. Hope you will join in!
