It is March 1st today and there is no sign of warmer weather in the Pacific Northwest. I was reminded of the saying, “In like a Lion, out like a Lamb” and sure hope that will be true this year – as we are all freezing here!
I was born in Calgary, Alberta and up until I turned 8 years old. I am a March baby and I remember snow on my birthday every year when living in Canada. But from then until a few years ago I had not seen snow on my birthday here in Washington State. March is typically rainy in western Washington – but usually not cold enough to snow. However the weather patterns have been slowly changing and the things I don’t remember in the seasons 40 years ago, or even 10 years ago – are indeed happening today.
And so we make a fire almost every night – bundle up when we go outside to take a walk and try to stay warm in the house during the day – and pray for warmer weather to finally arrive.
And so Happy March to all of you whether you are in cold weather or experiencing spring already. We will more than likely catch up with you at the end of the month when we get that “out like a lamb” kind of feeling. Lambs are definitely much more preferred right now in Seattle 🙂
