March Came In Like A Lion… Will It Go Out Like A Lamb?
We’ve all heard the old saying “in like a lion, out like a lamb”. What does that mean and where did that ever come from?
Well according to the Farmers Almanac, and we all know that the Almanac is like the bible to many farmers and ranchers here is what they say.
While many sayings are based on careful observations and turn out to be accurate, others are merely rhymes or beliefs of people who often believed that bad spirits could affect the weather adversely.
These believers were cautious as to what they did or did not do in certain situations.
Those beliefs often included ideas that there should be a balance in weather and life.
So,that being true, if a month came in bad or in this case like a lion, it should in turn go out good and calm, hence out like a lamb.
March is considered a changeable month, in which we can see warm spring-like temperatures or late-season snowstorms,, so you can understand how this saying might hold true in some instances.
However, this saying seems be to more of a rhyme rather than a true weather predictor.
Some other March related beliefs are;
A dry March and a wet May?
And as it rains in March so it rains in June.
What do you think?
Will march go out like a lamb or is this weather here to stay for awhile longer?
