The past few days, when the Tenants have been able to look up from their grading, they've seen brilliant sunshine outside and a subtle change in the quality of the light that suggests that something's up.

For Mary Ann, the first sign of spring is that the catkins have bloomed on her pussy willow tree.  

For Dennis, the first sign of spring was the receipt, on Monday, of the first piece of seasonally-themed junk mail (Sherwin Williams is having a sale to help you with your "spring painting").

It shouldn't be too long, the Tenants think, before the undergrads start driving around town with the windows down and the subwoofers throbbing (so priketh hem nature in hir corages).
