Spring doesn't so much "arrive" in Flyover Country as it eventually gets here after several false starts.

One morning the ground might be covered with snow, which will be gone by noon, and by 3 o'clock we've shucked our winter coats for shorts.
But like a herd of turtles in a sea of peanut butter, each day is progress, however tiny, toward putting winter behind us for another year.
