Time to Get Outside

March is one of those months that many of us wouldn’t mind skipping. It can go for warm, sunny days to raw, cold, snowy days. Yet March is also a time that reminds us that there is something about to come, a prelude to a new beginning, green grass and warm days. One thing March allows us all to do is get outside.

There’s something about stepping outside on a warm March day and listening to the sound of nature. There’s not humidity in the air yet and bugs are still sleeping. March is a time to get those sneakers (or boots) out and head outdoors for a walk or bike ride. It’s a time to remember those New Year’s resolutions of getting more exercise and remember why spring is a time for renewal.

Spring is coming – the official start is March 20th. March is supposed to be quite stormy and cool for most areas, so take advantage of those nicer days and head outside. This weekend we turn the clocks ahead so it will be light longer in the evening. Find the time to do something outdoors – walk, play baseball with the kids, just get outside and breathe in some of that refreshing air.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
