From An Illustrated History of Big Bend Country, 1904:
Hot winds, such as sweep the corn plains of Nebraska, Kansas and portions of Iowa never occur. The summers are not so warm nor the winters so cold as in the same latitude in the Mississippi Valley. Four months is the average length of the winters, which are accompanied by very little extreme cold weather, the mercury seldom dropping below zero, usually registering only a few degrees below freezing.
In the climate of the plateau small fruits, currents, raspberries, gooseberries and strawberries, and hardy varieties of large fruit, apples, pears, prunes, apricots and cherries are grown, likewise a great variety of garden truck.
