March Comes in Like a Lion. . .Posted: March 1, 2014
There’s a saying that “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” A lion day is a cold and wintry day, a lamb day is a warm and spring-like day. As a kid, my mom used to print off a March calendar and have us fill in each day whether it was a “lion” day or a “lamb” day. As we grew older, we started adding our own variations to “lion” and “lamb” days. Sometimes we would draw a lion with sunglasses or a lamb with a scarf (both meaning a sunny but cold day). Since we lived in fickle-weather Iowa, I created my own saying of, “March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion” (which happened more often than we would have liked).
This year, March is certainly coming in like a lion. It seems that the entire Midwest is facing snow and cold for this first week. This leads to the question, will March go out like a lamb? What do you think?
Personally, I’m thinking March is going to go out like a lion. Then again, I’m a big ol’ pessimist. 🙂
P.S.–For those of you keeping track, yesterday marked 2 months until Call Night! *cue dramatic music*
