put a sock on it

I wish this were an April Fools joke, but it's not.  It's predicted to get 
into the 35F range in the general area tonight.  Since I'm in a valley, 
albeit a small hill in the valley, that means it could well drop below 32F. 
In either case it's in the range of seeing a hoar frost covering everything 
tomorrow.  My experience with buds and hoar frost isn't good, so in spite of 
swearing I wouldn't try socks again, there they are.  I've tried it twice 
before and it didn't work either time.  Once the dogs removed all of them 
for toys and once the temperature dropped so low for a long enough time the 
buds froze anyway.  I've already got enough brown and shriveling buds and 
I'd really like to see some of the seedlings and others bloom.
