Winter Wrap Up is a big job. It's like we held on to winter until the last possible moment and then ran around in circles trying to meet the spring deadline. Maybe I should propose that next year we start a few days earlier.

Everything went as planned. Mayor Mare got us hot to trot with her Winter Wrap up speech, the team leaders made sure eveypony knew their assignments and waited for their cues, and everypony got to work. Snow was knocked out of the trees and shoveled away, teams of ponies cleared, plowed and planted the fields, the skies cleared, the lake ice was scored and the animals awakened. I checked items off my list as tasks were completed and made sure nopony skipped the signals. Tank dug his way out of his hibernation burrow into the bright sunshine and rested, blinking, by a big basket of food Dash had prepared.

The animal team finished rousing all the hibernating critters and with the help of pegasi, installed Rarity's bird's nests in the trees. Nightfall, everypony was in the fields, planting and watering and keeping everypony fed. We were still at it at sunrise. By late morning the southern birds arrived and Mayor Mare declared winter wrapped up. Overnight, we'd gone from the silent snows and whistling winds of winter to the buzzing and warbling of spring. Then we all went home to rest.
