If I plant it now and it starts growing...what happens if it gets flattened by two foot of snow?

Snow only insulates plants when lying on it. Frost does more damage.

Besides it's the bulbs I presume you're more interested in Dido and the snow will leave them OK.

Get them in now mate. Worry not about frost and snow. They are very hardy things. Ideally you want the shoots to be just clear of the surface before the hard frosts. When you think about it, they are rhe same family as onions and leeks which handle the cold weather with no problem. Just as an aside, if you are bothered at all, get some straw and cover with a couple inches and sling a net over to stop blwing away a. I've noticed a local farmer doing exactly this with over wintering carrots. Jok.
