it’s cold enough to kill a hog

today, i received a phone call from a woman wanting to know the current temperature and the predicted temperature for tomorrow morning. it’s a question i get a lot. the current temperature was 43 degrees, and the predicted temp for tomorrow morning is 32 degrees.

“thanks. i need to know that cause i’m gonna go kill a hog.”

we googled hog killing and discovered the temperature needs to be 40 degrees or lower so the meat doesn’t rot. now, i think our morning show host has something to talk about tomorrow morning. that was definitely one of the strangest calls i’ve received.

    What ever happened to I am seriously shocked that someone would call and bother you with such a trivial question. Some people have too much free time.

    Are. You. Serious?? That is perhaps the strangest blog post I’ve read today… maybe even this week. But, now I know that I can kill a hog anytime in the months of December, January, February and half of November and March… good to know!
