I hope that the direst predictions will not come true for you. When I got outside this evening to take a look around my garden after four straight days of rain I discovered a number of stalks emerging - FURIOSO (IB; B. Blyth, 1997) had buds opening (one almost fully open) on two stalks, and it is not just Medians, as a quick look around revealed several TBs with stalks already up 8-10". The predicted overnight low here is 39 - hope that is not too optimistic.
