On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited students to teach them about weather safety.

First, she met with the kindergarteners at Palmer Lake Elementary. The students loved learning the weather dance and watching the weather videos.

Then she visited the 2nd graders in Mrs. Young's class at Grand Mountain School. The students really enjoyed the hail experiment today.
