    Concrete and Freeze

    We poured the concrete decking on Wednesday (2/23) it is supposed to just hit freezing temperatures tonight (Saturday Night>Sunday Morning). The forecast is:

    1AM - 34 deg - Wind 1 mph
    4AM - 32 deg - Wind 2 mph
    7AM - 31 deg - Wind 4 mph
    10AM - 45 deg - Wind 0 mph

    This looks like the only time it will get below zero in the next 7-10 days.

    Should I be concerned? Is there anything I can/should do? I do have some big sheets of plastic tarping that I can use if necessary.

    Material is Stamped (wet release) and Colored if that makes any difference. I'll update my build thread if I get time tonight or tomorrow

    If the mason was worried, he would have added a little extra calcium to help it along. FWIW, hydration generates a little heat but that is gone now. In any event, I wouldn't think there is enough moisture left to cause an issue.
