Classic Covers: March Winds

Published: March 20, 2010

The March winds blow! Artist John Falter went to a small town in the Midwest for this 1952 cover of big storm brewing. The trees are practically bending over, a woman and child are rushing to get the laundry off the line and a man is putting up the top on his car (quickly!). The panic even seized the white dog in the foreground, who just rears his head back and howls.

    March blows in, cooling already chilly surroundings. Difficult to categorize, it simultaneously serves as wake for Old Man Winter and blustery harbinger to Spring.
    If it were a color, this surly month would surely be gray. Defying global warming, March enters like a lion and, often, goes out the same way; a trying, necessary–ultimately rewarding–passage.

    It’s funny how a picture can remind us of our past, I can certainly remember how the wind sometimes would howl and blow throwing a fright into me..
