Here Goes Nothing

I filled 5 gallon buckets with 105 degree water from out hot spring. Then placed the buckets under our apricot trees. Tonight the temperature is supposed to be in the upper 20s and I'm worried we could lose the blossoms (which means no apricots this year). If I am lucky the warm water might keep the trees warm and humid enough to avoid freezing the blossoms overnight. We have had high winds or I would have just wrapped the trees with a special fabric we purchased.
