Strawberry Farmers Prep For Freeze

PONCHATOULA, LA (AP) — Strawberry farmers braced for Wednesday night's cold snap.

         WBRZ-TV reports crews worked to cover their strawberries and protect them from the cold weather moving in.

         Farmers say if temperatures get too cold and stay there for too long, they could be facing a total loss of their crops.
