Using snow to get moisture back in the soil. The house heats up to 90+. Fans going to keep temp down. It won't take long for snow to melt and soils warm up again.

Kala DAP 40 Kala has a chance to break 1000 lbs. Seems that every time the kins get water manual or by rain, weight gains are stunted. This has been the case since I've started growing kins and tracking weight gains the day after watering. Water is stored in 1600 gal above ground tank and is warmed by sun. So cold water is not shocking the plants but applying water shocks the plant to stop growing. I don't think I'm over watering either. The water is problem close to the ambient temperature. Its like let the kin starve for water to get weight gains then just before leaves begin to wilt I give the water then. Even when foliar spraying fertilizer causes weight gain stunts for that day. Water is the problem.
