The Weather

Last night we had wind and rain from Superstorm Sandy. We're safe.

During the storm Mom, Dad & I started reading Rob Kapilow's "What Makes it Great?" together. We read the first chapter. Dad had to explain what 78s are. It turns out that they were vinyl records that look kind of like CDs but they're bigger and they're black. We have a record player here but it's not for 78s. Mom played the clips  and Dad read and we had lots of fun reading all about Antonio Vivaldi's Spring (Movement 1). Here's a clip of it on youtube.

We also listened to Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland. It's so different from Vivaldi's Spring but you can feel the Spring in both of them.

It was nice listening to these songs especially in the not nice weather.
