At last a new month approaches

After yesterday’s blog you might think that winter in Wisconsin is finally getting to me.

You might be right.

I am pleased that the next time I come into the office the month of March will have begun.

March has been a long time in coming.

It is a month that can bring just about any kind of weather.

Usually in March we swing a couple of times from winter to spring and back again before it is all over.

But that changeability is what makes it so much more appealing than February.

Spring comes in March, at least according to the wall calendar, and that is sufficient reason for me to like it better than February.

I was trying to think of a fitting numismatic way to close out the month, but nothing occurs to me this morning worth mentioning.

It is sufficient to write that winter is going away, I am still a collector and this blog is as fittingly short as the month of February is.

I will worry about leap year’s 29 days next year.
