Pity me. The temperatures in DF are plummeting and are predicted to continue to do so over the weekend, plunging below all known records. Or so they say. Even more to the point, pity my turtles. They live outside and look distinctly unhappy. I’d bring them in, but they always get ill when I do that. I brought the two littlest ones in last week, and one is already sick.
In fact it’s so cold, I even went out and bought a little electric fan heater to take the chill off the air. I know that anyone back home in England will scoff at the thought of temperatures that are ‘nearly’ at freezing level, which in some parts of the UK would require temperatures to rise considerably. But hey, they choose to live in a frostbitten country. I came here to escape it!
