Helping kids with their homework is fun.

I found a request in my e-mail this morning from the daughter of a friend in Pittsburgh. "What is the weather like in Japan in January? Will you write back and tell me tonight?"

So I prepared a very brief summary of Japan's weather. Because Japan is oriented on a north-south axis, the weather varies from snowy to tropical. I described the snow in Sapporo, the rains in Okinawa and Tokyo's mild, clear skies.

Tomorrow, my answer will be read aloud to a 2nd grade science class. I hope I did a good job.
