Frost/Freeze which kills buds?

(Bev) Wytheville, VA(Zone 6a)

I am curious about the possibility that my apple trees were not harmed by the cold or frost. From what few articles I could find on the Internet, I believe the future apples may be alright. But I don't know if I'm interpreting the data correctly.

We had a frost warning for the last 2 nights. We never saw any frost, but the temps got as low as 28 degrees in zone 6a. The apple trees were "full pink," the stage right before blooming. The buds and small leaves look fine today. Does anyone know, or have access to information that could venture a guess?

Thanks in advance for your opinions!

Hey Bev, why don't you post this on the Fruits/Nuts forum? You might get more answers...

OK, I'll post as you suggest. I wasn't quite sure where to post. I figured the weather watcher folks could help out on this one, haha.

Thanks Darius.
