We are running late here also, but not so severe...
It's been pouring down rain at about 40* F

There's more snow on my garlic beds now than there has been all winter. No hurry, I just hope they survived the times without the snow.

Same here. We went through multi days of sub-zero (F) temps with no snow on the beds for insulation. Last year was one of my best garlic years. I'm afraid of what this year will bring...

Enough snow melted that I could finally get to the garden yesterday. The beds run east-west and the north half is still snow covered, but the south half are bare and I have lots of garlic sprouting. I was so happy to see that! The rest of the snow should be gone within the next few days.
