Because you have to keep your chin up and just put one foot in front of the other to get through this month! If you don't live in the Midwest you won't know the gloom of March. It is a sloppy mess of grey skies, dirty snow and cruel hoaxes in the weather report every day. We hearty souls have it hands down in the "delayed gratification" department....unless you count brownies.
It will happen, Spring is almost here....when all Midwesterners remember why they punish themselves for five months out of the year. Hope your tulips are up soon!
