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?
