So, What Was It?
March 20, 2008 - Dan Voigt
There are so many of these old sayings, you know the ones: "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" and April Showers bring May Flowers are a couple of the oldie but goodies. And then there is the old adage, "If March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb." OK, I'm confused here. As I recall, March 1 was an OK sort of day, breezy, sunny, temperature was in the upper 20's lower 30's. A couple of days later, it got to about 50, and then it got cold right away. Now, we're at the 20th of the month, and the weather guessers are calling for the possibilities of a major winter storm this coming weekend. This brings the question - Did March actually enter like a lamb? The verdict is someone cloudy, by my estimation. But, all I can venture for a guess is that if we had the lamb, then the lion is really going to bite us in another week. I'm sorry, but that prospect really isn't too darn appealing. Unfortunately, I don't see any recourse. I keep thinking back to the original "Saturday Night Live" series with the original "Not Ready for Prime Time Players," John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Jane Curtain, Gilda Radner, Garret Morris. There was a sketch one night where Belushi portrayed the weatherman who discussed the old March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb adage. Belushi went on to tell about countries where March came in like a wildebeast, and left like a lemur. He got so worked up he was practically frothing at the mouth and the sketch closes with him completely melting down, diving over the desk in convulsions from the overload of material..... I think I know how he felt....
Now where did I put the gloves and long drawers?
