Last month on Groundhog Day, the furry meteorologists predicted an early spring. Fast forward one month and sure enough, March is coming in like a lamb. But how did the groundhogs manage to get it right? Do they spend their winter hibernation months conducting underground studies in rodent meteorology?!? All we can say for sure is that the lion of spring has laid back—allowing warm, lamb-related thoughts to spring ahead 🙂
We’ve lived here 4 years, now (furthest north I’ve been in my life). We’ve heard longtime locals claim it can snow any month of the year. And we know from experience that March weather can be anything from mild to extreme, or anything in between. Moving here in 2009, our first March welcomed us with -50ªC temps and loads of snow!!! Yet even so, hope manages to thrive in the winter-worn hearts of all who survive… Yep, hope for the day melted snow stops freezing overnight into hazardous ruts with potholes and finally stays away! I’m looking forward to that day 🙂
And hey, speaking of spring…
Have you heard these goats sing?
Here’s hoping spring stays in the air! ❤ Jackie
