#1 Just how cold was it, all the way down to 80?
Doesn't say.

#2 The El Economista story did not mention temperatures in Chihuahua state, but the story in El Imparcial did, the data of which I included because it had data about the eastern sections of the state. The El Imparcial story did report how coastal areas around he Gulf of California were enjoying high temps in the lower 90, albeit with high winds. The other El Economista story did mention general temps, which I included. One reading from an area in Chihuahua had the low reading of -18 C, which failed to make it in the story (Thought I included it, sorry)

None of the two Chihuahua state Organizacion Editorial Mexicano (OEM) newspapers, El Mexicano nor El Heraldo de Chihuahua had a story about temps. I use OEM because they have a pretty good archives for me to check.

I hope this explains everything.

#5 Tucson had lows in the upper teens/lower twenties, and highs in the lower to mid forties for several days before it warmed up again around Tuesday. And yes, I know that for most of the country this would be standard to balmy, but for us natives it was frickin' freezing.

#6 I recall the Newfondlanders were having a "Heat Wave"(1954) And people were falling out from Heatstroke, sounds bad, right.

The truth is, that the temperatue wednt to 70 and People were falling out with Heatstroke "BRCAUSE THEY WOULDN'T SHED THEIR LONG HANDLED UNDIES (Long Johns") so it was entirely self inflicted.

Hence my Comment about "What? did it ge to 80".
