It's that time of year again - the middle part of March (in this neck of the woods) - when those of my clan begin to anticipate and watch for the Richesnay.

I wrote a rather lengthy post several years ago entitled The Meaning of "Richesnay",  but in the interest of brevity I will simply refer you to that post and throw out the question: Have you ever heard of the word Richesnay or anything even remotely close that refers to a similar concept?

Richesnay [RIH-ches-nay] - The sudden blowing, swirling, voluminous, late winter snowfall that surely marks the coming of spring.

I am trying to track down the origins of the word/concept "Richesnay."

Ring any bells?


BlogDogIt Note: I had the image above, just knocking around; not exactly sure where it came from, but it has been among the random "Perfect Timing" widget images. I had always thought that I would use that picture to illustrate a Richesnay post but after compiling this post I really did not want to use it without attribution. So I ventured out onto the interwebs and promptly discovered www.tineye.com.; a reverse image search (in beta) that functioned masterfully. I therefore recommend that you give them a try the next time you are looking for an images source for attribution.
