Robert Christy, comp.  Proverbs, Maxims and Phrases of All Ages.  1887.
A snow year, a rich year.  1
In March much snow, to plants and trees much woe.  German.  2
Snow for a se’ night is a mother to the earth, forever after a step-mother.  3
Snow is the poor man’s fertilizer.  4
The more snow the more healthy the season.  5
What lay hidden under the snow cometh to light at last.  Dutch.  6
When in the ditch the snow doth lie,
’Tis waiting for more, by and by.
When the snow falls dry it means to lie;
But flakes light and soft bring rain oft.
Whether you boil snow or pound it you will have but water from it.  9
