Weather update

7:00 AM: 35° in Marfa, 37° here. So the oasis will be fine. Whew!
7:30 AM: 30° in Marfa. Oasis holding at 37°


  1. That's a relief; I hope this is the last weekly polar plunge for the desert SW, especially with frost chances. We hogged the cold...26F low at my house!

    <28F for a couple hours, my flowering penstemons, salvias now limp (sorry hummers), but may recover. Mesquites green buds seemed to recoil to shrink from cold, so fine. Late and unwelcome!

  2. Sorry you got zapped. We had already lost all our fruit in Alpine before this last episode.
