Weather Folk Lore:
SHEILA'S BRUSH - Fierce storm and heavy snowfall about the 18th of March.
Sheila's Brush is the last of winter usually around St. Patrick's day. The snow
is a result of Sheila's sweeping. Legend has it that Sheila was St. Patrick's
wife, sister or mother. Sometimes a storm before "Paddy's" Day is
called Patrick and Sheila.
"When March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb, when it
comes in like a lamb, it goes out like a lion" If this
weather prediction is true don't put away your shovels yet, for winter
is far from over.
