We have an old folk saying that when the month of March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb. This means that if the weather is cold and stormy at the beginning of March, it will improve and be mild and gentle at the end of March. That was not what happened this year. April arrived on this weekend. But we are going to have cold weather again with temperature below freezing every night. March usually began as a cold and snowy month. Ice formed all over the branches of tree, causing such a heavy weight that the branches started cracking and falling off.
