March is a weird month

March is that weird month when the sidewalks are treacherously icy on the morning walk to work and on the walk home you have to avoid all the puddles and slush. You don’t dare stand or walk on the edge of the sidewalk unless you take pleasure in getting soaked by passing cars.  It’s not really a pretty month because the snow is dirty, the trees are brown, potholes are revealed and you never really know how deep the puddle is you are stepping in until it’s too late and your shoes are soaked and you get a booter (not sure if that’s just a Canadian slang word or if it’s used in other parts of the world!).  But the days are longer, the sun is warmer, the snow is melting, you can toss your big winter coat aside, and everything just feels a little lighter.

This quote pretty much sums it up…

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”  -Charles Dickens
