Monthly Newsletter-March 2013

March is called the windy month. It is considered windier than other months.  The extreme contrast in temperatures causes major storms to develop moving cold air mass. The barometric pressure in the core of the air masses increase to high levels. Simultaneously, the increasing sunshine over the temperate zones produces warm air masses to develop and head north.  The low pressure combines with high pressure producing southerly winds that bring warm air in contact with the cold air from the north.  The pressure differences between the strong high pressure mixed with the deep low pressure make for windy days in March.  But we live in Iowa, so what do we expect!

There is a lot of exciting things going on this month.  Daylight Savings, March madness, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and I’m sure much more in your busy life.  Don’t forget to move your clock forward one hour at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 10, 2013!  I think they do this just to mess with us!

2013 will be 75 years of celebrating March Madness!  What is March Madness?  It is a single-elimination college basketball tournament held each March in the United States to determine the NCAA  Basketball Champion.  The NCAA tournaments are an American Tradition that entice many people each year.  It concentrates on 68 basketball teams vying for the college basketball biggest prize.  Many people participate in a basketball pool.  March Madness office pools are by far the most popular pool there is. Check online on how to set up your March Madness pool. Check:   www.printyourbrackets.com.  This will be another good reason for our spouses/loved ones to be glued to the tv even more!

I may not be Catholic, but I sure love this time of the year because of all of the Fish Fry’s.  Have you been making the rounds to everyone’s Fish Fry?  My family sure has!  Mmmmmm!  This time of year also brings Easter.  This year I have donated my time this year to help organize the Easter Egg Hunt here in Laurens.  Things are going great with it and we can’t wait to see everyone the day of the Hunt.  Make sure to mark your calendar for Saturday March 30th.  We will be serving pancakes at the Methodist Church starting at 8:30.  The Easter Egg Hunt will be at Sportmans Park at 9:30 a.m.  All the children will get easter eggs……I have been spending my time organizing eggs and there will be over 1,400 eggs!  Woo Hoo!


We have been getting so many new things in the Salon.  There are a lot of great ideas for things to put in your Easter Basket.  No matter what your price range is, there is something for everyone.  Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for great ideas from Cuts to Dye For!
