March is the month of expectation, when there is as much light as darkness and a sense that life is shifting from one expectation to another. Many wonderful things occur this month – Daylight Saving Time, St. Patrick’s Day and the wearin’ o’ the green, First Day of Spring, and the return of the little chirping birds.
March is also a month of considerable frustration – we are at the latter part of winter and spring is just around the corner… yet the weather is still so changeable and sometimes even violent, that up here on the mountain much of our time is still spent indoors.
Regardless of the date on the calendar, today is feeling very much like winter. Since last night, we have had another foot or so of snow fall and it’s still coming down. Once again, everything is covered in a thick blanket of white.
