Weekly US Drought Monitor


ON THIS DATE IN 1816: Twenty inches of snow and sleet at Danville VT. Snow flurries reported as far south as Boston. Waltham MA recorded a low temperature of 33 degrees and New Haven CT recorded 35 degrees. It was all part of the “Year Without a Summer”
The dust from Mount Tambora, which had erupted in early April 1815, had shrouded the globe. And with sunlight blocked, 1816 did not have a normal summer.

There are 3 Classifications for Rocks


http://www.rocks-rock.com/rock-types.html

    Igneous:    “(derived from the Latin word igneus meaning of fire, from ignis meaning fire) forms through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igneous_rock

    Sedimentary:    are formed at the earth’s surface by the accumulation and cementation of fragments of earlier rocks, minerals, and organisms or as chemical precipitates and organic growths in water (sedimentation).”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedimentary_rock

    Metamorphic:    “
are formed by subjecting any rock type—sedimentary rock, igneous rock or another older metamorphic rock—to different temperature and pressure conditions than those in which the original rock was formed. This process is called metamorphism; meaning to “change in form”.”
