In Like a Lion?

I'm a sucker for old adages and old wives tales.  I don't necessarily believe or buy into them; but, they're always in the back of my mind.
Today is March 1!  Growing up, I was taught "If March comes in like a Lion, it'll go out like a Lamb".  This meant if the weather was nasty at the beginning of March, the end would be calm and beautiful.  However, the reverse could be true as well.  If the weather was nice at the beginning, it would be lousy at the end.

Today, the weather is gloomy with freezing rain warnings over much of the province.  I think it's safe to say March is coming in like that nasty old Lion.  Here's to hoping it goes out like a Lamb!

  1. Rain rain go away. That's what it's like here. Wet and damp.
    And I can't believe it's March 1 already. Seems like yesterday we were celebrating Christmas.
