[NAFEX] Apricots from Afghanistan

According to the climate zone maps, my ranch area near Eureka Montana is in
zone 5a but I think Glacier park entry area where my brother lives, although
listed as the same zone, is more like 4b because of the cold winds coming
out of the canyon. The peach is in the town of Columbia Falls.
I do know that there usually are several weeks of below 30 degrees in the
winter near Eureka and there was been a time it went down to 49 below (but
that was a long time ago).

Do you have any idea what the historic low winter temperatures are there
(during the life of the tree)?
