No, you didn’t suddenly stumble upon the local weathercaster’s blog.
In our family we think it’s funny to discuss negative degrees. We want to know, how can you have a debit of degree? How can you be in debt to zero? We say things like, “Someone, somewhere, has taken more than the alloted degrees allowed for the day, and we now have a degree debt.”
This morning I read the forecast aloud to my kids – “There should be 1 degree on Friday night, and it should be 6 BELOW zero on Saturday night.” I then asked my son if he’d like me to awaken him at 1 or 2 am on Sunday morning, and we could go searching for the missing degrees He said no. He’s a smart kid.
If you have pets, please be sure to bring them indoors. And, no matter how tempting it is, don’t go looking for negative degrees!
