A Hill or a Mountain?

According to new measurements, a peak in Wales that was up until now deemed as a hill, may be reclassified into a mountain. In Britain, anything lower than 2,000 ft. above sea level is a hill, anything higher is a mountain. Recent measurements by a private group of people have showed that the peak may be a little higher than 2,000 ft., instead of a little lower. This is considered a big thing in Wales, where the inhabitants are proud of their rugged terrain. Personally, I would find better things to do than measuring the height of a hill. The interesting thing is, though, that private citizens care so much about this that they do these measurements.

Shouldn't it be 2'000 feet?

Good luck with becoming a mom btw. I'm sure your puppies will become adorable.
