Lindsay: I liked how everyone spoke clearly.
Iman: They have way more snow that us. We get zero inches and they get 10 inches annually.
Grace: It was nice speaking with them because we've never seen them in real life. We only know them through our blogs.
Hannah: They have much more rain than us. We only get 14 inches of rain a year and they get 50 inches! (We are very close to being a desert which only get 10 inches of rain per year.)
Jaden: Our winter climates are VERY different! They get snow, and they even have snow days!
Adia: They live closer to the ocean than us and have a lower elevation. We are about 800 feet above sea level and they are only 14 feet.
Finn: They live near the Atlantic Ocean and we are near the Pacific Ocean.
Nicole: Their population is 18,000 and ours is 24,000 people.
