The heater had seemed to run nearly all night long, so I knew that it was very, very cold. When I nervously went to check the digital thermometer around 5 a.m., that apparently shocked instrument simply read, - -.
Minus minus? How bad was “minus minus”?
Well, Worland’s mercury officially bottomed out at -36° and topped out at a measly -5°. (With prayers, extra feed, and additional bedding, the livestock seemed fine; all took naps in the afternoon sunshine.) I’m grateful that tomorrow, we’re supposed to reach a relatively-balmy 23°. Still, I long for the day when our thermometer will gush: + + !
