Yesterday was the ADS Southern Region Show in Conway, Arkansas about 335 miles to the northeast of my home in Plano, TX,   I left the show to return home about 2 pm yesterday afternoon with the temperature in the low 70’s.  After an hour and a half driving the temperature had dropped 20 degrees and had begun raining.  Another couple of hours I’m passing through Keith Kridler’s home town of Mt. Pleasant  and the temperature is in the mid thirties with a mixture of rain and snow falling.  This continues off and on for the remainder 2 hours of my trip.  Shortly after arriving home the temperature’s hovering around freezing and snow begins to stick in some places.  This morning  we awoke to 4 to 6 inches of snow. 
Today’s high was about 42ºƒ and with expect mid thirties tonight and low sixties tomorrow, so the snow should be gone quickly
Below are pictures of my beds

From this bed I took about a dozen or so blooms all in blue ribbon winning collections at Conway.

A clump of Tahiti buds.  Will be interesting to see if they’ll recover.

    Rod, Thanks for the tales of the Texas spring snow. The weather all over the world has been wild and unusual this year so far.
    Here’s hoping it settles down to normal and stays that way soon! Of course in Cincinnati, we don’t know what “normal” means when describing weather. We have a saying that if you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute!
