"need to put my springtime music back in the car"

As a pro composer I was wondering what music you would consider to be
"spring" or any other seasons for that matter.

I could write a sonnet about my Easter bonnet.  :-)

For me, that would be music from tropical climes, specifically
the islands in the South Pacific.  I find myself thinking of
that on the first balmy days of spring and sometimes into the
summer.  Odd, huh?

Speaking of temperature, the batteries become more efficient as they warm up
either through natural ambient air flow or more aggressive driving. A cold
night in-between two warm days could result in a change in the way the
hybrid system reacts for you on a well traveled road, say mid morning for
example. On those summer days when the night temperature stays uncomfortably
warm you can count on excellent mileage right from the get go on your
morning route.
On one particular road (you may know where it is, near Robinson State Park)
my Prius does a free fall down, going from 35 to 43 mph in the summer by the
time I've reached the bottom. But in the winter the most I see is 38 mph.
The denser colder air does have a remarkable negative impact.
