It's April 1st and that does mean it's April Fools' Day. I remember my mother always starting off the morning with a bit of foolery. It was so much fun that my children would giggle over the things Grandma said. Now it's nature's turn to play a trick.
I woke up during early morning and was surprised to see the trees swaying at a rapid speed. The howling was faint and the sun looked like it wanted to peek. Still groggy from not enough sleep, I crawled back into bed.
Second round: I woke to a bright April morning and stillness. Naturally, I wondered if I really saw the wind sweeping across my neighborhood, so I opened the window and quickly closed it! Eek! It was winter-in-spring. I turned on the news to hear weather words like brisk, chilly, winter-like. What a trick of nature!
With nature and some digital tools, I conjured up what the original picture I saw could look like with trees swaying wildly pre-dawn.
