We were lucky here in Phoenix. I'm in a cold spot but my lowest
temperature was 26F the first night then 29F the next. I had everything
covered or inside.

That 1998 blast was the worst since I moved to Arizona in 1983. I almost
lost a lemon tree; only the trunk survived. January 2007 was bad but not
so bad as 1998.
