Weather camp

Bob performed at a local weather camp last week. We took all of the boys for the set up. I don't know if any of us were very helpful to him, though.
The kids were very well behaved and seemed to have a good time. He played the banjo for the "Weather Riddle Song." He's wearing his "fair-weather" jacket that I made him.
But it was too hot to keep the jacket on, even though it is a lightweight one.
He showed the kids about air pressure and the importance of geography.
His tornado in a box and mind-control over a floating ketchup packet were the big hits I think.
He also brought out his trusty accordion, because that is another example of air pressure. Baby Plum's seen the shows before, but got a lot out of this one. He took a hand-held barometer everywhere with him that entire day. I had to tell him not to take it in the pool. (Bob had mentioned to the kids that pressure changes when you're underwater.)

Mind control over a floating ketchup packet? That sounds interesting!
