My snapdragons are still alive.  No flowers, but the plants are 
doing as well as can be expected.  We've had lots of nights here 
(southern Ohio) belowing freezing and it hasn't done them in yet.

I certainly don't think they will make it till spring.  Probably 
will go to plant heaven when it hits single digits.
