There are so many sayings that people have said for as long as any of us can remember.  One of those, that we all learned in elementary school was the lion vs lamb for the month of March.

I cannot remember any other March where that saying rings as true as it does for this year.  I'm not saying that it hasn't happened, I'm just saying that I can't remember one that is as spot on as this year is; in like a lamb, and out like a lion.

This year is like the winter that wasn't.  Until now.  The next 3 weeks will be full on Winter as we officially head into Spring.  It's so strange as we have has Spring like weather for the entire Winter season, and as soon as we hit actual Spring, Winter is deciding to show up.

This week we are expected to get some snow - up to a possible 6 inches in some areas.  So, if you happened to purchase some sort of snow toy, you may have one last chance this season to enjoy that purchase.  Also, if you've been missing out on shoveling, driving in snow, snow blowing, plowing, etc, you may have that chance this weekend as well.

But, as this time in Minnesota happens, this round of snow won't last that long, as we will be heading into warmer weather again soon.  But for the next 3 weeks, expect more winter in Minnesota type of a forecast.  The forecast says we will have 2-6 inches possible for the latter part of the week into the weekend.  If this was last year, we would get like 6-8 inches of snow.  It just seemed that whenever they forecasted a range of snowfall, we got the upper end plus some.
