93; Not Fahrenheit
My minor casualties consisted of a few splayed ornamental grasses (Panicum virgatum ‘Prairie Sky’ seems to be the worst of these), a snapped off Caryopteris 'Blue Mist', and a broken-off rose, Griff's Red, that was down to a single cane and had been struggling anyway. With a little luck, the only permanent damage was the Griff's Red loss and I tried to minimize that impact by planting some stem cuttings from the cane. Time will tell.
