ATLANTA -- The first full week of Spring is hardly typical as metro Atlanta is under a wind advisory with another night of freezing temperatures on the horizon.
In McDonough at Southern Belle Farms, Jake Carter fights the wind to protect his livelihood. Weeks of warm weather encouraged acres of strawberry plants to bloom. Another freeze could kill them before they have a chance to produce fruit.

"That is a great concern for us obviously," said Carter. "That's our livelihood and that's what we want to protect."
In some fields, Carter covers the plants with a protective sheet. In other areas he'll use water to coat the plants in a protective bubble.
