Spring is here. Outside my window, I see the sun peeking over the horizon. The birds are starting to chirp. I hear the sound of a tractor whirring
in the distance. This ambiance can be described with the cliché, “the calm before the storm.” Soon in rural Ohio, and all across the United States,
our world is going to erupt with activity. The sun will seemingly come up (and go down!) much faster. A chorus of other critters will join the
birds. Tractors will no longer whirr; they will whiz. Life will start to move at a swifter pace.
