Shouldn't you guys be use to it and shouldn't it not be a big deal? You live in snow territory after all....
It's the folks down south that I feel for. We got an email from a guy who transfered from here in PA down to TN with a picture of 6-8 inches on his old Porsche clunker saying, "I moved down here to get away from this ***t!"
In New York? I'm down here in PA and it's not a given thing, but we do have a very good chance for getting snow again before April. We even have a pretty good chance of snow past April some years.
I won't see anything budding for quite some time yet. I think that is what you mean by bloom. Bloom is when the flowers are out. We have to watch come April that we don't get a frost as it will kill all the fruit (strawberries, peaches, etc.) Around May 6 is the last frost date for me according to the Farmer's Almanac. Before that, we still have pretty good chances of getting snow.
