I know it seems like it's here - the frog soundings, the subtle leafings out, flowerings, sproutings, birthings, sunnings and all the trappings of Spring. But there's one more thing that's missing. Seems like every year when the season is really unstoppable you can feel the massive shuddering tilt of the Earth's axis shifting beneath your feet. But I haven't felt it. It's a pessimistic thought, yes, one more big heavy frost. There have been years like this before when spring jumps the gun and winter pipes up and insists on the last word. In 1993 we got a blizzard in March. I hope I'm wrong.
