After a good snow wallop, forecasters warned of record-setting lows last night (just weeks after setting almost record highs…).  Not taking chances with waterfowl’s metabolic ability to ride out meteorological roller-coasters, we brought the girls into the garage last night and added a few heat sources.  Duck down is cold-resistant (see above) but sub-zero is sub-zero.*  Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!


*Browsing around this morning, best I can tell we hit about 3 degrees Fahrenheit, give or take.  That’s sub-zero in Celsius, right?
