Over a year ago in February 2011, the temperature plunged from -15 degrees to -20 degrees F. throughout the middle Rio Grande valley—the coldest temperatures ever recorded in this region of the northern Chihuahuan Desert. Thousands of people were left without natural gas for cooking and to heat their homes because of weather-caused shortages.
