March Comes in Like a Lion. . .

lion and lamb

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*
