March came in like a lamb Saturday, with a high of 81
degrees F. The lion showed up Sunday with rain, sleet, snow, and overnight lows
of 14 degrees F. Yes, this is normal for
Darling Daughter 2 remembers going to the movies with a date
several years ago about this time. He wore shorts because the weather was pleasant.
When the movie was over, temperature had dropped 30 degrees in the
hour-and-a-half they were in the movies, and the guy nearly froze. Yep, more
normalcy for Texas.
March is Irish-American Month. Many people in the USA are of
Irish descent, so St. Patrick’s Day is a well-celebrated occasion. In San
Antonio, Texas, the river through town runs green. In Dallas, there’s an Irish
Celebration at the State Fair Grounds. On Dallas’s Greenville Avenue, there’s
another St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Towns all over the country have parades
on St. Patrick’s Day. I suppose the most famous is in New York City.

March 2 was Texas Independence Day. Not a big holiday unless
you live in Texas or are a displaced Texan. “Remember the Alamo” has a great deal of
significance to Texans, even to those like me whose relatives showed up in
Texas a few decades later. I’ve heard that’s also where the saying “One Ranger,
one riot” originated.

March is when the Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure” is held
to raise cancer awareness and research money. Darling Daughter 1 is a breast
cancer survivor, , Hero is a subcutaneous lip cancer survivor, and I’m a
thyroid cancer survivor. You can bet that we are in favor of cancer research
and early detection awareness - and hoping Darling Daughter 2 escapes this disease!
So, whether your weather is snowy or sunny, celebrate the
month that finally brings spring on March 20th.
