Should I allow snow to push back my flyer routine?

For the last 5 years I've passed out 1000 to 3000 flyers starting on the 1st day of March. This year we got hit with two huge snow storms at the end of February and unless we get a big warm-up, grass probably won't be growing as early as usual. Should I allow the snow on the ground to stop me from my advertising? It's supposed to be in the 50s later this week, so that may take care of some of the snow. But I'd feel like I might be wasting my flyers passing them out when people still have snow on their minds. Of course, I profited from the snow so I'm not unhappy we got it. Just trying to determine what my timing should be on these flyers as they also include a small incentive for signing up with me before April 1st. Thank you.

Absolutely wait...until the season has definitely changed.

No snow on the lawns, birds singing, sun shining, and you see trees budding and grass growing...around this time.
