March–Out Like a Lamb?

Everyone I know is always ready for spring by late March, so patience and understanding of bad weather that helped us get through the nasty days of December, January, and February is running thin. Most of us think it should always be nice in March. Good luck with that.

That’s why one of my favorite quotes about March is from Doug Larson–although the quote is about spring in general:  “Spring is like when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.” One of the reasons I mock Daylight-Saving Time is that an extra hour of sunlight in the evening to watch the snow melt isn’t worth having to get up before the sun rises.

The most famous of all quotes about March is:  “In like a lion; out like a lamb.” Everyone says it, but it seems to mean different things to different people. Some people think it means that March always starts stormy but ends with tranquility; however, others–and this is how I heard it when I was young–think it can be reversed, too. “In like a lion; out like a lamb” because March is so fickle that it will most likely finish with the opposite weather it began with.

Egreenway.com has some quotes about March; that’s where I found the earlier quote.

–Paul Yeager
