The month of wind

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.
