Our Thermometer: Frosty Noses

Frosty Noses: Our Thermometer

Chloe’s nose is now our most reliable thermometer, I’ve been conducting a scientific study of the temperature when it causes her warm breath to freeze on her whiskers. So far, I’ve determined that this only happens when the temperature falls below 20 degrees, it has to go lower than simple freezing.

Today, the old thermometer read 14 degrees. This told me the temperature had probably fallen lower during the night. More to come.  I am learning all of the time that we don’t need many of the things we think we need.
