Can plants damaged in a heat wave be saved?
Our drought tolerant landscape has some plants that were severely damaged in a heatwave of 107 degrees. The plants are echeveria and green agave whose leaves are shriveled and dried up. Is it possible these plants can be saved?

It's possible that they will recover in time with some supplemental watering.
Drought tolerant doesn't mean complete immunity to extreme water deficit, so don't hesitate to irrigate once or twice a week during a heat wave.
