Today is March 1
I'm a fan of weather lore
And for the month of March
An English proverb describes typical March weather:
March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb
And in 19th Century America, it was used as a prediction contingent on a year's early March weather
If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb
(but it doesn't work very well!)
However, the reverse is true . . .
if the weather is nice early
it won't be at the end
Today, on the prairie
It will be lionlike
(6 to 10 inches)
That's pretty lionlike to me!!!!
Sometimes on March 1
it may not be lamblike outside
But it is inside
When we have lamb for dinner!
(And we don't follow that at the end of March with a dinner of lion --
we've never eaten lion, although we have eaten wild boar!)
