March is most definitely a turning point in our family calender.  It’s when we have the most birthdays and anniversaries, currently.  Eventually.  however, as we speak, March has made steady progress, we had really awful weather at the beginning of the month – snow and ice all over the country.  It wasn’t quite as severe as some of the national weather forecasters had suggested, but it did know the wind out of a few cocky sails.  There were a couple of major road networks that came to a complete standstill because of blizzards, some folk not rescued for two days.  The forecasters are holding on to the threat that the beast from the east is on it’s way back again and we will indeed see more snow.  So keep those patio sets and deck chair ensembles well and truly locked away in their secure cabinets as you won’t be needing them any time soon!
