March is a strange month in Rochester. I moved to Rochester in the month of March way back in 1974. It was towards the end of the month the day I arrived and imagine my surprise when my plane landed and there was snow on the ground, lots of snow!
It can be warm and sunny, cold and rainy (make that cold, WINDY, and rainy), or really cold and snowy. . . take your pick. Today it is cold and snowy. By the middle of the week, temperatures are forecast to be high 40's, low 50's.
Even though we have had a mild winter in Western New York this year, I am really ready to shed the boots, winter coats, polar fleece gloves and trips to the car wash to get the salt off my car.
Living in the northeast, you learn to appreciate little things, like the first crocus bloom you see in your yard or when you realize it is time to put away the flannel lined jeans and get your Spring/Summer shoes and clothes out of the tote in the shed! Or when the Weber grill that has been gathering dust in the garage all winter needs to be pulled out, wiped off and turned on again! Strips steaks, baby back ribs, burgers. . . potato salad, three bean salad, blueberry salad. . . mmmmm!
