A curious incident happened in London when high pressure air and cold air became seemingly trapped over the Thames River Valley, which caused many Londoners to burn extra coal to keep themselves warm, and subsequently created a massive smog cloud that ended the lives of nearly 4,000. The smog persisted for 5 days, and by the 3rd day all sunlight was blocked out by the smog.

Person 1: A deluxe donut party has all the fixings from hot chocolate, to donuts, to Christmas cookies, to coffee, to bagels, to fruit, to juice, to… you name it you’ll have it!!! And it’s enough for the entire homeroom.
Person 2: The runner up homeroom will receive a regular donut party…. Which is just donuts.
Person 1: Third place will receive high fives from future president of the united states Mr. Marzock, which is totally better than the other prizes!!!!
Person 2: So, bring in some loose change, bring in a new gift, or do both and help out some local families this holiday season.
That’s it for us today Ephrata. Have a great day!
