"Febrero es loco, Marzo es otro"?

From >Named after Southern California's Santa Ana Canyon and a fixture of local legend and literature, the Santa Ana is a blustery, dry and warm (often hot) wind that blows out of the desert. In Raymond Chandler's story Red Wind, the title being one of the offshore wind's many nicknames, the Santa Anas were introduced as "those hot dry [winds] that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen." > It's that kind of windy day in San Miguel. On days like today I hate the wind. A guy quoted a saying to me, something like, "Febrero es loco, Marzo is otro." Did I get it right, anybody, and what does it mean? I gathered he was sympathizing with me as my hair blew straight up like a fright wig taking my nerve endings with it. Carol Schmidt

The weather saying is 'febrero loco, marzo otro poco'. It means, "February is crazy, March is a little crazier."

We've certainly seen the truth in this around Guadalajara this year. It's rained, and rained hard, several days in February and again in March. In 25 years, I've never seen February/March rains like this. And today it's been very windy here, too. And mañana--¡quien sabe!
