[nafex] Re: Cold

     Thanks for the kind offer, but I think being in Pennsylvania, 
and needing it by tomorrow night (or possibly tonight) its wouldn't 
get here in time (and its unlikely I'd get to spray it.) I'm going to 
try several ideas:  
1) Set up my sprinkler in one place 
2) Cover what I can and place filled water jugs under the covering. 
3) Hang miniature christmas lights on one apricot.

See what happens and watch the forcast.
