Poor March, its happy promise of the coming spring was robbed from it. Instead of a collective sigh of relief that winter was ending, everyone was holding their breath in anxiety of what was about to happen. No one noticed the melting snow, the trickling water, birds returning, days getting warmer. On a personal note, this reminds me somewhat of the spring when we discovered dad was dying, due to the constant sadness, I called it "the spring that wasn't". I worry because for years after, early spring was a sad time of year for my family.
I wonder if most societies will be scarred for life around this time of year. Spring 2020, a time of death like these generations have never seen before. We should have been fill with excitement for better days ahead... now however, we don't know what is ahead.
Farewell March, you did your best, it's not your fault but unfortunately March 2020, you will forever be tainted in the history books, as will your sisters April and probably May. In fact you might as well just accept that spring 2020 in the northern hemisphere is not about renewal, it will be about sickness and death. Boy, can you ever tell I'm in a mood eh?

Sometimes the prettiest of things can be the most deadly.
They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. As you said, this year is different. Going out like the grim reaper. And from what I’ve read, the worst is yet to come. Stay safe, stay well.
March certainly felt like a year.
And it's certain that this Pandemic is going to affect our lives for years to come. And it's not even over yet!
We'll have to Keep social distancing and washing our hands like maniacs for awhile...
I look forward to the day I can keep the door wall open at night. I live near marshy fields and you can hear thousands of frogs chirping.
Hopefully we, and our elected officials, will learn something from March 2020 and do something to make sure we don't go through this again.
But the only way that will happen is if We The People remember what happened ... and vote!
I'm going to look at the bright side (shut up!), March is the month in which all of my dental and periodontist appointments were cancelled. YAY! No scaling and planing! So there's that.
At least it's getting warmer and the spring bulbs are starting to bloom.
Maddie, you mean like you? ;)
HuntleyBiGuy, yes that's a perfect way to describe this, out like the grim reaper!
Sixpence, if I'm still alive, I will probably be talking about this next March.
Bathwater, I can never leave the downstairs windows open, blackbears like to crawl through. I do love having the upstairs windows open in spring, especially the spring peepers. I fall asleep to that chorus.
Bob there was failing on both sides of governmental beliefs.
Deedles, there was definitely a bright side, the days got longer so more sunshine means brighter!
Richard, no we still just have snow... yyyyuck but it finally is starting to melt. Yaaaay!
