During the past week we have had some strange weather around here.
Most of the days are very warm, in the upper 80s on several days. Sure doesn't feel much like
winter! But the overnight lows would be down to around 50.
We have had several earthquakes here lately. But the biggest was only 5.0 on the richter scale. It
was from a newly discovered fault line that runs under Long Beach. It is 40 miles long and 10 miles wide.
It runs from Seal Beach north.
The last few days there have been strong Santa Ana winds here also. The winds were often
60 miles per hour. This has started many fires in the area.
At school last year we had a BIG test. This year, since we had
that test the people who scored real high got placed in a group called XL.
My whole class is an XL class. The XL group gets to do special things.
In this group we work with Newspapers. We cut ut parts of it to spell our names and
other things. Soon we will cut out pictures to make a big collage.
