Borrowed Days

The last three days of March were said to be borrowed from April.

image: calendar‘March said to April,

I see 3 hoggs (hoggets, sheep) upon a hill;

And if you’ll lend me dayes 3

I’ll find a way to make them dee (die).

The first o’ them wus wind and weet,

The second o’ them wus snaw and sleet,

The third o’ them wus sic a freeze

It froze the birds’ nebs (noses) to the trees.

When the 3 days were past and gane

The 3 silly hoggs came hirpling (limping) hame.”

Also on this day ....

On 29 March 1848, the flow of water stopped completely over Niagara falls due to an ice jam in the upper river for several hours. The water flowing over the falls was reduced to a mere trickle. People flocked to see the impossible. Some saw it as a sign that the end of the world was near.
