The Lion of March Was Delayed Three Days

My latest column in The Kitchener Post is up. Enjoy!

It’s interesting: I’ve had no less than three people approach me on the street, in recent weeks, about my column for the post. The one question they always ask? “So, how good was that coffee you bought?” It really is difficult to predict what will resonate with an audience, isn’t it?

My thoughts and prayers to those south of the border who are cleaning up from the worst March outbreak of tornadoes on record. We were clipped by the northern edge of this system, which gave us some heavy rain and thunder late last night, but the wind stayed with us all day. The temperature wasn’t all that cold, and while the rain had turned to snow, there wasn’t much of it to coat the ground. But the wind certainly sounded wintery.

With this year’s winter that wasn’t, I’ve been wondering how March would progress. You’ve heard the saying: “in like a lion, out like a lamb”? What happens if the lion becomes a lamb? What does the lamb become? An armadillo? But with the wind today roaring like a lion, perhaps that’s one question we won’t have to answer for another year.

Anyway, it’s late, and I should be heading to bed, so I think it will be a short blog post tonight. I hope I’ll have more to write about tomorrow.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with Basia Bulat singing Heart of My Own on CBC’s Q.
