March’s Sour, Blustery, Fickle Weather

“March is certainly a step from winter towards summer, yet its sour, blustery, fickle weather, if one looked no further, and did not consider the law, would induce the belief that the earth had taken the wrong road, and that summer did not lie in this direction.”
— John Burroughs, from The Heart of Burrough’s Journals, edited by Clara Barrus

“Well, March has gone out, as she usually does, angry and sniffy, and slammed the door behind her.”
— John Burroughs, from The Heart of Burrough’s Journals, edited by Clara Barrus

Today is the vernal equinox.  Happy first day of Spring!

    Thanks for the reminder re: the equinox. All I know is that it’s been good weather with longer days, which means I have to get back to a full work schedule, and I barely can move when I get home at night. This isn’t a complaint, but an acknowledgement that all my fine chatter about not feeling my age gets tempered when I have to put my body to work!
