As a Mom I’m always on the look out for interesting information about science, space, and nature that I know my Spyderwolf will like.
Today I discovered an article for the 2013 Fall Edition of The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids. I love this annual publication. The Almanac in all it’s versions are always full of great information, historical stories and sometimes weird tales that bring all of that together. Such as this:
The Great Cobweb Storm occurred in October 1881, on the shores of Lake Michigan, from Sheboygan to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The sky was thick with white webs, from minuscule pieces to 60-foot-long strands. It is believed that this event was caused by certain species of migratory spiders that cast their silk on a breeze and ride the wind to a new location.
