To row or not to row (cover)

This is a read and discuss post.
Please read, then discuss below!

We have read about the vile and despicable vine borer.
We bought 250 feet of floating row cover.
Our seeds went in two weeks ago and now have a few adolescent leaves.
But now I'm wondering if the tender new plants can handle the (current) heat and dry ground under a tent. Will we cook the squash before it's even fruited?

Your thoughts?

Can this tender young thing handle the heat under a tent of floating row cover?
