OK, it happens every year, but this year — with this snow — maybe we need it a little more than normal.

In a sure sign that spring will, eventually, return, the Red Sox equipment truck is on its way to the team's spring training facility in Florida.

The truck began its 1,480-mile trip just after noon on Thursday.

The Associated Press has these Truck Day details:

It's hauling an assortment of baseball equipment and supplies, including 20,400 baseballs, 1,100 bats, 400 pairs of socks, 20 cases of bubble gum and 60 cases of sunflower seeds.

And here are some photos and vines of the truck's departure:
