The folk of Ponyville have donned their vests and winter gear for the annual Winter Wrap Up, where all they do their part to 'clean up' winter for the arrival of spring. Always willing to get involved with Ponyville's traditions, Twilight Sparkle is anxious to join, though this is easier said than done since, unlike in Canterlot, magic is not used to change the seasons. Because the town's founding as an earth pony village, manually cleaning up winter has become a tradition; while Twilight respects this, it leaves her with limited opportunities to help.

Meanwhile, the rest of the girls are put in charge of their usual duties. Rainbow Dash, with the rest of the pegasus weather team, clear up the clouds to let in the sun's warmth, as well as direct southbound birds back home. Applejack directs a team of farmhands and other earth ponies to shovel the show off the land so they can plant new crops. Pinkie Pie's team skates around on the lakes: the cuts allow for the ice to melt faster when the sun shines. Fluttershy, as always, is put on animal duty: waking up the hibernating creatures in the area. Finally, Rarity is put in charge making flashy new nests for the returning birds and has designed the color-coordinated vests for each pony's team.

Despite her best intentions and efforts, Twilight fails to help her friends at all of these tasks. In her attempts to help, ends up hurting herself or making her friends' assignments more difficult. Since she is incapable of flight she is unable to assist Rainbow Dash; her attempts to make bird nests sets back Rarity when she spends the remained of the day trying to fix Twilight's sole nest; she almost injures herself and Pinkie Pie when she tries ice skating for the first time; finally, she is attacked by bees and skunks while helping Fluttershy with the animals. Even after being pressured by Spike to use her magic, she only makes things worse: while trying to help Applejack, she enchants her plow to move by itself, which loses control and crashes into a hill, causing an avalanche of additional snow to cover the area.

While sulking in town Twilight overhears an argument among the other ponies. It turns out that Ponyville has always had problem around this time: spring always arriving "late", and this year is no different. The weather team is being pressured on both sides to either delay or quicken the melting of the snow. Work has gotten behind not only due to Twilight's mistakes, but due to the mistakes of other ponies. The Mayor stresses that the teams need to be more organized or they will be late again. Twilight, naturally, takes up this opportunity with great enthusiasm: if anyone is up for the task of organization, it's the book smart unicorn.

Twilight takes charge of organizing the assignments for each team in a certain order; she has them multitask, plan, and get creative with their methods. Once all the ground work is down. that is done, the weather team are signaled to clear the clouds and start blowing away the leftover snow. Now additional planting can begin and, long into the night, the fruits of Twilight's efforts begin to show. For the first time in the longest while, spring arrives "on time", much to the joy of the Mayor and the folk of Ponyville. For her efforts, Twilight is given a special vest and role: All-Team Organizer. When it is all said in done, Twilight writes her letter to the princess. She writes about not only the benefits of friendship and teamwork but how if one is patient and diligent, they can find their hidden talents.
