winter is back and March came in like a lion after all

Remember the old saying, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb?" It was a nice day on Tuesday, no lions around here, only pigs!

I was wrong on Tuesday. March did come in like a lion. It just waited four days to make a sneak attack.

That's right, winter came back today.


I created this image, Lion In A Snowstorm, a year ago (tomorrow). Seems like the perfect image for today:

This image shows how I feel about snow (most of the time, but especially in March/April). Yes, snow can be pretty and it's fun to make snowmen and snow angels, but after the first snow of the season, the novelty wears off. By March, you just want the snow lion to go back to the frozen tundra it came from, or the zoo, or really, anywhere else. (Note: Winter last year was actually a lot worse than it was this year, which is what caused me to make this drawing.)

All in all, a little snow today isn't a big deal, but I'm ready for winter to be over.

Happy March everyone! Hope it's not snowing where you are, and if it is, I hope it stops soon!

p.s. The only nice thing about snow in March/April, is that you know that warmer weather is on the way, and non-snowy-cold days will soon number more than snowy-cold days. Hooray!
