March has arrived; Let's hope for nicer weather.

March has arrived.  I'd like to suggest that winter is all but over, but "likes" aren't always reality.  One area which doesn't necessarily forebode well...the month is starting out with sunshine albeit still very cold.  We can't help but think about that old adage:  In like a lamb, out like a lion, or something close to that.

We do have snow showers in the forecast right into the first of the week, but certainly not the chance of the lion's roar which would have suggested a nice ending of the month.  There is a major storm heading across the U.S. right now, but it is expected to go off the Eastern shore in the mid-Atlantic, well below us here in Maine.

So we'll just have to see what this change in months brings us.  At least the end of the winter season is almost here.

I do like March.  The sun, when it shines, is now high and the temperatures, although this year are still well below average, will be creeping up into the comfortable zones.  One of the TV forecasters did point out that we need warmer temps to bring in some snow which will begin the end of this miserable, expensive winter.

Two of the four members of my immediate family celebrate the beginning of a new year, or is it the end of an old year?, this month.  And at least one member of my Fearless Friend's family celebrates hers. 

I certainly hope your month is a super one and I'll have some new thoughts on Monday.
