Hello Francelle,

Wind in the 40 mph range is what we're due today.  It's been blowing 
all night.  I'll be lucky if some stalks don't snap.  Blooms act like 
umbrellas in that kind of wind.  If the bloom survives, the pressure 
can still snap the stalk.  My AB season isn't going to be great this 
year.  Too many bloom fans didn't survive the freeze that dropped down 
in the 20s.  Growth stalled, now some are beginning to wither telling 
me what might have been and isn't going to happen.  Maybe some of the 
later ones and TBs will salvage the season.  Many of the ABs earlier 
bloom puts them at risk for those cold snaps following periods of warm
