Will Winter Ever Leave Us?

After a severe and bleak winter, we were finally enjoying some spring-like weather here in the northeast.  Cheerful spring flowers were beginning to bloom and there was a fresh spring aroma in the air.  We even started to replace some of the storm windows with screens - and then it happened - winter took us by surprise and reappeared, temperatures plunged, and snow fell.  It was cold enough to cause some real damage.  This is a real shame because after waiting all winter for the cheerful blooms of spring, it's quite sad to see tulips frozen as they were just about to bloom and other flowers zapped from freezing temperatures.  Did you experience this, as well?
