Further Research on the Weather History of "In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb"

While a few of my loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers were thoughtful enough to check in with comments on my earlier post about "In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb" and the weather to be expected, no one seemed to have a serious database of weather history (and Lucky Lady, aren't you in California, where the weather is always grand??), so I'm headed to the Farmer's Almanac for further research.

Here's what the Farmer's Almanac had to say about Northeastern United States weather for the month of March 2009:

1st-3rd Clouds increase, winds freshen. 4th-7th Major storm brings strong, gusty winds and moderate-to-heavy precipitation (hmm... the storm actually came on March 1st and 2nd, and I don't think we're expecting any more snow this weekend). 8th-11th Mixed clouds and sun. 12th-15th Frigid, as arctic air spreads in from the west. 16th-19th Early spring storm brings wind and heavy rain. 20th-23rd Significant storm develops along the Southeast coast, moves north with rain and snow. (So much for out like a lamb, huh??!!) 24th-27th Increasing warmth. 28th-31st Colder, with a Midwest storm moving toward New England.
