It is the same here in central Saskatchewan...we just got 2 feet of the white stuff a week or so ago and -30C weather (-22F) until 2 days ago snow in the forecast for the next couple days....

Basically, most of the last month has been early March weather, but this last week, we had late February weather.
Each morning I get up, look at the weather report and see that it's going to return to normal temperatures by the end of the day. Sunny, light clouds, all that stuff. Each day it is overcast, cold, and wet. I think the weather report people could do with a window.
Instead of harvesting snap peas in Feb and Mar like a normal year, here it is the middle of May and the peas aren't even knee high.
I planted my tomatoes out a few weeks later than normal, well past our last frost date, and it went down to 3 degrees C a couple of nights later (forecast low of 12C so I didn't cover them) and killed half of them.
I'm getting a bit tired of winter here.
Monday will be 80 then the decline to freezing at night begins. So this signals my 'get the house ready for invasion of houseplants and peppers' and starting to take out plants at the end of their production. What's getting me is the tomatoes are FINALLY putting on.
I might take a chance on waiting for a thawed day in November to plant the garlic, if the snow goes away. Any day the snow is gone and the ground isn't frozen, I will plant. I'd like to get it done this month. I have hundreds of cloves to plant.
As for the garlic, I plan on doing that today. Good luck with yours
