Spring In Illinois

Ah! The fresh air... the budding trees... the greening grass... working in the garden... all the normal signs of spring! But if you live in the Midwest, there are other signs of spring, too:

1: Anhydrous Ammonia tanks being hauled past your house by pick-up trucks...
2: Long lines of cars behind farm equipment on the roads...
3: Roads that make you feel as though your teeth are going to be jarred loose...

And the surest sign that spring has come to Illinois:

A weather forcast containing the words "thunderstorms possible; some storms may be severe".

YAY!!! Spring is actually HERE!!! :)
