Greg Fishel (middle) meets with students at Lead Mine Elementary School on Tuesday, February 3, 2009.

This past Tuesday, I took my annual trip to Lead Mine Elementary School to visit with the Kindergarten students.

They were very well behaved and had some great questions! One of those questions centered around why the temperature got colder in the upper atmosphere even though it is closer to the sun. Boy, that's a good question at any age!

The picture above relates to what I saw when I first arrived at Ms. Rivera's classroom – the dreaded Fishel mask!  It was scarrrrrry!!!
