When you think of March Madness, the NCAA women’s and men’s basketball tournaments come to mind. But, the true madness lies in the weather.
March is supposed to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. But, not so fast in 2013. The extent of the current weather in the central US and Mid-Atlantic states is a potent reminder that spring can bring some of the worst weather of the season.
New England was hit by more than a foot of snow in some areas this month, with additional snow after the fact. Washington D.C. (downtown) got their first inch of snow in two years. Parts of Kansas got more snow in this storm than they average most winters.
The next couple of days will provide the true test of what sort of animal the end of March is to be.
