    Hey all. Thanks to help from some members here, I got a grape vine successfully detangled from its neighbor and replanted. The good news is, both survived, and both have multiple buds.

    The bad news is that we may be getting anything from freezing rain to eight inches of snow this weekend. Is there anything I should do to prep my vines for this?

    Multiple layers of floating row covers could protect efficiently against pretty harsh conditions.

    Thanks! Fortunately, we got some cold rain, and that was it. Both vines have now put out leaves, and are starting to put out new growth.
