Potentially devastating freeze for Grand Valley orchards breaks record set in 1933.
National Weather Service meteorologist Kris Sanders reported a record low 19F (-7.2C) Monday in Grand Junction, according to The Daily Sentinel. This was a full two degrees below the previous record set in 1933.
Other crops such as pears and cherries may also have been affected by the freeze.
Grower Bruce Talbott said there may not be enough crop this year to market outside of local consumers.
