175 years: Firewood and cannon fire.

Alama watch:  During the first week of the siege, hundreds of cannonballs are fired at the Alamo by the Mexican army.  The shots land in the Alamo’s large enclosed yard. 

February 25:  A “blue norther” blows in.  Temperature dips to 39 F (4 C).  Several Texians try to gather firewood outside the Alamo, but Mexican troops thwart them. 

February 26: Texians dare to leave the Alamo, to burn some abandoned huts where Mexican troops are taking cover.  There is reason to think that one Texian is killed.
