    The meaning of the sentence.

    Hello!

    I can't understand the meaning of the part of the sentence in bold, it's from a book.

    "She starts work at about 6 am, and works anything from 15 hours a day to nothing, if the weather is bad".

    She works long hours when the weather is good; she doesn't work when the weather is bad.

    Arctica, please note that a better title would have been anything from 15 hours a day to nothing.

    Strange, I would use "anywhere."

    "She starts work at about 6 am, and works anywhere from 15 hours a day to nothing, if the weather is bad".
