“In like a lion, out like a lamb”
Where I live, it probably won’t have reached the lamb stage by the end of March, but the lion part usually holds true. Officially, the Spring Equinox falls on March 20 this year. In northern climes that does not mean that we have seen the end of snow – yet. Here in Michigan, we normally get one snowfall during the first week in April. Usually not much, but something.
December days were brief and chill,
The winds of March were wild and drear,
And, nearing and receding still,
Spring never would, we thought, be here.
~Arthur Hugh Clough (1819–1861)
