Three Snows

“We’ve had one snow since the geese started coming home, so we’ll have two more before spring.”

– A gentleman’s remark during a casual conversation. When I asked the origins, he replied:

“Oh, it’s an old saying. Once the geese come back, there are three snows until we finally get spring.”
