So long as the ground is not frozen you can plant them.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Otherwise, cool, dark and dry, though don't let them dry out (moist sand is a good way to store them)

We have had a very, very wet fall and I was unable to plant some of my bulbs in the garden because the soil was just too wet. I tend to order way too many bulbs and I always pot up the ones I can't find room for or don't have time to plant. That way I am sure they will survive the winter and I get blooms in the spring too.
You don't know if it will grow until you try!
