The Buddies and I were discussing the temperature on the way home from Grandma and Grandpa's house. When we climbed into the car, the digital readout said it was 12*. By the time we got out of the driveway it had dropped to 10*. We hit 9* by the corner... As we proceeded up the hill to our house, the temperature fluctuated between 3* and 7* finally settling at 5* just as we pulled into the garage.
It took some persuasion for me to convince The Buddies that it was actually getting colder when the numbers dropped. They were convinced that the on board thermometer was only measuring cold. They thought that the bigger the number, the bigger the cold. But JJ confirmed that he understood the concept.
So what does it mean when it goes from 3* to 5*?
It means that it's still reeeaaallllly cold!
