They say that March sees the windmills sail and the kites fly. It is also the month of opposites. Whichever way the month begins it will end in a totally different way. If it is rough, violent and wet it will end calm, sunny and dry.
March is named after the Roman God of War ~ Mars – no wonder it is often such a volatile month!
There is an affectionate saying from the past regarding the month of March:
“March is the month of gusts and rusts.”
It is often the case that something will begin to go rusty in the month of March for the very first time … so it is the month to make careful inspection of anything made of metal.
