Looks like 2019 has come to a stop for you too.

Most definitely. I moved all of my dews in earlier this week. Nothing but cold from here on out.

Couldn't help myself and bought another Lowe's fly trap. Are these young enough to skip dormancy this year? I know they grow slow but I have no idea how to tell how old they are.

Most of the mass produced VFTs are fresh out of Tissue Culture, only a few months old.
I don't think they have a firmly established Circadian Rhythm yet.
I believe they would do OK under artificial lights this Winter, then put them outside next Spring.
But next Fall/Winter, it should be allowed to go dormant.

But Remember, I'm a Drosera guy, not a VFT specialist.
As always, this is only my 02¢ worth.
