March has been like a lamb

There’s the old saying about March that if it comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb, or vice versa. So far March has been more like a lamb with temperatures in a pleasant range and little to no snow. If the saying holds true we could have some snowstorms later this month, but we will see.

Right now the long range forecast has a possibility of snowstorms, snow showers and cold temperatures. I say possibility, because another old saying usually proves true. “If you don’t like the weather wait five minutes.” Since it changes up so much we could be seeing rain showers. Nothing wrong with that, but I hope the ground will be able to absorb the moisture rather than running off and causing flooding.

Most people who know me already know my attitude toward weather is it happens. If we’re still getting snowstorms in March, to me, that’s not unusual. If we have a foot of snow on the ground in early April, that’s not uncommon, but I hope it’s gone by the end of April. I find it more odd when we’re having warm weather in mid-December or early February.

I grew up about 300 miles northwest of New Prague. To most of us in the United States that doesn’t seem that far of a distance. It is far enough that when I visit family I’ll see how they will have more snow or colder temperatures than around New Prague. From what I’ve seen on local TV stations while most of the snow cover has gone away around here, they still have quite a bit, plus temperatures are below 30 and there are more chances of snow. For them March hasn’t been much of a lamb.
