Yeah, I think this print pretty much covers everything that people think of when it comes to the month of March.
Well, Internets, it's finally March, which means (if you're in the Northern/Western hemisphere of things) that spring should be coming around any day now. Which is a pretty comforting thought, as that it's pretty much a universal truth that spring is infinitely preferable to winter so anytime that season wants to roll on in is just fine with virtually everybody, but there's just one teeny-tiny eensy-weensy problem: nobody knows when that will actually be. Why? Because the month of March is an unpredictable punk, that's why.
If you think I'm being unfair, check this out: Today, it's supposed to get up 60ish degrees, which is pretty nice. But then it's forecasted to drop down into the 30s tonight, which the only reason I can see for that is because it's out of some cracked-out consideration for Saturday, because that day is only going to warm up somewhere in the freakin' 40s. And mind you, that's not even touching on the precipitation we're expected to get, either (which is apparently going to be a whopper on the days it does fall.)
So, yeah--March is a weird month and it moves in mysterious ways. But--and this is where it gets relevant, folks--does it live up with the old saying of the month "coming in like a lion and out like a lamb"? Because that strikes me as giving March some undeserved credit for being dependable. Dang it, I know there have been times when it felt like the reverse was true; that the month started off a lot more calmly and smoothly than it when it finally wrapped up. Oh, and seeing as weather has a tendency to vary depending on where you're located on the map, so technically March could be kicking off with a blizzard and a heat wave at the same flippin' time.
So Internets, I ask you: Is March coming in like a lion (as represented by this crocheted ear flap hat)?
Or is it like a lamb (as represented by this sheepish cocktail hat)?
'Cause honestly, I think it would be beneficial if we could collectively debunk that proverb and then summarily deep-six it.
So let me know, and see you next week!
