Morning Jan and all.
I can't exactly say what the temperature dips were, as I wasn't tracking them at that time.  But this year, after a few weeks of steadily rising temps into the 60's F and above, with active growth showing, the temps have suddenly dipped to below 30F over the last few days, with a light frost.  If buds were forming, I'd expect some to be 4 and more falls. 
The last few years, there have been quite a few throwing extra falls, whereas in the past, it's only been SDB Sarah Taylor that often does it.

Yes, we have had strange weather variations back and forth but remember my cold weather is in the low to mid 40s and highs have been in the low 80s.  When you say "suddenly too cold" I am sure you are referring to much colder temps. 

I once had two flowers on one stalk have 6 falls.  That was on Shoot the Moon about 5 years ago.  It was very interesting but has never done it again.

All very nice, Jan.
We often get 4 falls here, caused by it being suddenly too cold when the buds were forming.  Last year, I had 2 iris with 6 falls.  They looked like Japanese iris.
