Mission Statement:

Pretend that you are a meteorologist working for the Valdosta weather channel.  Your boss is gone for the week and he has put YOU in charge of the station.   During the week, two major weather events take place.  You must draw pictures that show what the weather is like, then send them to your boss.  He wants explanations with each drawing: you need to describe the weather and tell what damage, if any, the event caused.  Also, compare and contrast the two different weather events that you draw.
