March has so many fun facets, events and experiences all beautifully positioned into thirty one days!
Today was one of those magical days of March when I ask myself, really?  What did I wake up to?
Snow Flurries or affectionately called when growing up, “Spitting Snow”.   
Pouring my coffee I did seem to recall that Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow!
The past couple of days have been spoiled with high sixty degree temperatures which were preceded by a week of snow and ice. Experiencing the warmth, blazing sun and beautiful blue skies preparing for the official ringing in of spring and Daylight Savings Time was so welcomed the past few days.
Quickly adjusted that today was going to be another fabulous day just with more layers to keep me warm!
I got to thinking about “Spitting Snow” and Punxsutawney Phil, Daylight Savings Time and began to remember all the sayings I learned growing up and events that occur in the month of March. So I thought I would share some of them here today!

Fun Phrases and March Flurries:
·         Punxsutawney Phil’s February 2ND predictions soon to be realized?  6 more weeks of winter!
