[nafex] Record cold

It sounds like it'll be worse for the more southern folk than for us up
here. The low predicted for tonight here is -12, which is pretty low, but
within the 'normal' range for us. We've also currently have about 20" of
snow on the ground, a lot for us. I've experienced -22 at my location, and
we typically get lows below zero 5-10 times a winter. But not for the last
several winters. Unfortunately I planted some semi-hardy things last spring
like jujubes and mulberries that often die back here in severe winters, and
I was hoping for a couple more mild winters for them to get established
before it got really cold.

Hopefully the snow and the straw I piled around them will balance out the
-12 temperature and the 30 mph winds!!
