Lions And Lambs

Spring is barely four days old and we got our first spring snow storm already. I doubt it will be our last snowfall; the odds are against us with another three months of spring to go.

There's a saying about March coming in like a lamb (or lion) and going out like a lion (or lamb). It means that when March starts out mild or stormy, it ends with the opposite condition.

As with most sayings, it is a bit vague. Does the phrase "comes in" apply to 1 March exactly or is there a range? This March started mild but cold. Then there was a snow storm on 5-6 March. So did March come in like a lamb or a lion?

Inquiring minds want to know. ^_^
