> By 10 AM the sun has thawed frozen stalks and flowers. Blooms are
hanging like rags on twisted and bent stalks and those tender stalks
that have not bloomed as yet are mush.

That's where I'm going to be in a few hours, I think. Sleet is filling
the interior of the blooms and the leaves are already showing clear

this weather system covering? Hopefully NM, CO and points further
north have been cold enough to delay much of the damage and will go on
to have a good season.
