What's flowering this week January 28 in Kansas City

I'm getting a little bit distressed hearing about all the things blooming
now in supposedly cold parts of the country.  Here in western South Dakota,
the temperature at 5 AM today (Wednesday) was 2 F.  The temperature may
rise to 28 F later today, but not much more.  This weekend, though, we will
have high temperatures in the 40's-50's F.  This is typical for this part
of the state.  Like Jim W's Kansas City, we are in a drought; when snow
melts, it just disappears into the soil.
None of the bulbs I planted last fall are showing any signs of life
aboveground.  It's likely that I won't see them till March, which is
probably a good thing.

Drought continues and the ground is literally dust for the first inch or so
- then moist.

breeze it was bizarre to say the least. The warmth worked and suddenly
there were half a dozen clumps of Crocus 'Firefly', almost always the first
to bloom here and very welcome, too. They clump up nicely to form
individual bouquets in the the garden...
