    Oh no!!!! I'm so sorry. do you know how long it spiked...Could it have been a fluke and just an instant? I'm so hoping they might be alive.... I've heard of spikes to 109 and survivals.....Just hoping.

    Again, sorry for your loss.

    maybe the reading was off.
    maybe it wasn't too long.
    maybe that was the hottest part and maybe there was some cool spots.
    i am hoping for anything.
    did you open any up?
