Today's proverb: In like a lion out like a lamb

In like a lion, out like a lamb. This is proverb is used sometimes to describe the change of seasons from winter to spring. In like a lion means that at the start of March winter is still very strong. Cold weather and snow! Out like a lamb means that the change to spring at the end of the month results in calmer weather. I found this cartoon which explains the origin of this proverb. Enjoy!
