March Went Out Like a Lion

17-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today: 

Sunday, March 31, 1912:Today has been a glorious day. Went to Sunday school this morning and to church this evening with Ruth.

I can picture Grandma and her sister Ruth walking this street in McEwensville–past these houses–on a beautiful spring day a hundred years ago.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

There an old saying that if March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb—and that if it came in a like a lamb it will go out like a lion.

Grandma  and her sister Ruth walked the mile or so to McEwensville twice on this spring day. It’s always feels good when March ends with good weather.

  1. Nothing like a beautiful spring day! March is going out like a duck today – rain, rain, rain. A good day for inside chores!

  2. It has been a record breaking warm March in Mississippi. Cloudy, warm, today. April’s forecast is cooler than normal. Thank goodness.

  3. I’m trying to figure out what happens when March goes in, AND OUT, with a miserable rain storm…I hope it means something good is coming in April.
