March is always a tricky month. I've always known it, but when you farm, you become SO much more aware of the weather. So much of what we do here is dependent on the weather. Too much cold. Too much hot. Too much rain. Not enough rain. It all affects what you are doing day in and day out.
Throughout February and the beginning of March, we've had a lot of Spring-like days, and even some Summer-like days. We get outside and do warm-weather stuff. We start believing that winter is over, and we start looking through the closets for our shorts.
And then a few days later, it's freezing again.
(It's also been really, really rainy here which doesn't help either.)
(It's funny that thing called RAIN. You need it quite badly on a farm. But you don't really like too much of it either. We farmers are so picky.)
Take a look at these beautiful and not-so-cold day photos:

And then today we had a beautiful and big snowfall. It didn't stick, but just comes to show you that the saying about the month of March is correct: "In like a lion and out like a lamb!"
