Here We Go Again!

Almost two years after it initially bloomed, WIU Titan #3, is in the process of doing it again.  To refresh your memory about the first time it bloomed, you can go back to here and here.  It measured to be 18 1/4 inches tall this morning.   I do not anticipate it to get as big as it did in 2010 (6' 7" tall overall and the spath was 44" across).  Now, the question is when will it open?  I am predicting ten days to two weeks but it is just a guesstimate at this point.  Seems like a good office pool contest though!
