Protecting Plants From Late Spring Snow

When I looked out my window this morning I could not believe my eyes, because snow was falling onto my newly green lawn and my flower gardens.
Tulips in snow

White powder from the sky is covering the newly opened tulips, lilacs, redbud blooms, irises with buds, and this morning I noticed the hostas had broke the soil surface.  

My entire yard and garden is flourishing because of the warm spring like weather.  This April Snow will destroy my plants because of the hard frost advisory.

Normally I cover my plants with blanket frost protection and I will use the row covers for my crops in raised vegetable garden; however I cannot cover the entire yard and all of the gardens.

I am hoping for the best, that the wintry mix moves far enough away from my area to prevent the temperatures from dropping into the low 20’s.
