We have no need of a weather forecast to tell us when it is going to be a cold night – son’s mischief of rats always lets us know. In fact, they are more reliable than the forecast for knowing when a cold spell is coming.
Today, all four rats (in between bouts of sleeping) have been busy building “nests” of newspaper and coconut fibre, so they can be snug and warm when the temperature drops – which it is forecast to do overnight.
What intrigues me, is how do they know? How can they tell, when the day is sunny and reasonably warm, that it is going to turn cold?
Nature is truly a wonderful mystery 😊
