LION or LAMB
...if March comes in like a lion, it will
go out like a lamb.
Lends to the ferocity or gentleness
of the weather.

the U.S. settlers, who relied on weather
observation to forecast the weather.
Usually the month begins--cold,windy

Leo is crossing toward the meridan.
Leo the Lion. As Leo marches away,
the Constellation Aries begins to rise
toward the end of the month. Aries
is the Ram. What many lambs become.
Our month came in like a lion with a
ton of snow on the ground and a
second snowstorm behind us.
How did March arrive in your neck of
What did ya think of all that trivia??
