April's Fool

Proof positive Mother Nature has a sense of humor. 

It was a heck of a winter. The snow pile left by the plows at the end of the street reached over 8 feet high and twice that in depth.  It’s an ice burg that will take a while to melt even when the rest of the snow has gone. And gone most of the snow had by March 31st with the exception of a few stubborn spots. Then Mother Nature realized what the date was.

April 1st dawned snowy. As I left for work this morning, a blanket of crystal white covered everything. Gray skies hung low overhead obscuring the mountaintops across the valley.

By 6:00 p.m., the skies had cleared and the snow had vanished. Poof! Spring had reappeared.
