Vernal Equinox in Reno

The sky is filled with clouds, taking the days from bright, sunny, warm, to the cloudy days of Spring
Spring in the Carson Range, is a tumultuous time
The gently resting snowfields slowly succumbing to the sun's
        radiant heat
From below, new life frantically pushes up against the hard and crusted soil,
Undermining Winter's attempt to smother all things in white
Spring is the growing pains of the new generation, reenacting the rituals of the past
The death of winter recedes to the resurrection of the earth, much like last year, but completely new
       and different.
