Generally it takes an actual freeze (temperature 6 feet off the ground below 32 degrees) that lasts several hours to kill the oak blooms. A frost can occur at the ground's surface even when head-high air temperate is 35 or 36 degrees.

I think we are fine. I don't know where yall were, but It was just patchy at my place anyways. Creek bottoms was frosty and my truck was frosty.

I believe in April of 2007 or 2008, we had two or three consectutive nights if mid to upper 20s. All the trees were already about full green, and after those nights the tree leaves turned black, very strange looking. That was the only year that I remember not having a good acorn crop on my hunting spots.

I think we will be okay. It did get down to 27 here for a short time but I dont think it persisted long enough. Im more versed on apple blooms though.

It was the EHD year, 2007. It was a "Perfect Storm" of terrible conditions. First, we had an early spring, and trees were far advanced in leafing out and blooming. Then we had temps drop into the teens. The cold weather not only killed the oak blooms it killed most of the leaves, requiring the trees to put on a second set (and stressed some trees to the point of no return, killing them). Then we had the hottest August on record and one of the worst droughts on record from mid-July through most of October. And of course, the EHD outbreak (probably caused or at least greatly worsened by the drought).

The fawns from that summer have shown a tendency to underperform all their lives.

Those temps would worry me. But we have had a late spring, and I bet trees on the Plateau were not as advanced in blooming as they normally are at this time of year.

Yep I remember asking my dad if he had ever seen it before and he said no. He is 71.
