It's time for another themeless crossword! I am longing for spring to arrive once again here in Minnesota. We have a polar vortex on its way to us which is supposed to plunge our temperatures well below 0° F. The accompanying piece of music for this puzzle evokes the feeling of spring, the cycle of rebirth and renewal.
This crossword is a bit on the more difficult side, or at least that is what I was aiming for during its construction and cluing. So, good luck!
