It's like those suckers are superglued to the trees. We're having a typically dreary November so far, which provides a perfect atmosphere to snuggle under a quilt and lose yourself in a good book, but it's difficult to take a photo which clearly shows the trees. I took the Nov. 5th picture right before we had several intense storms blow through. I wanted a basis of comparison for afterwards. I would have thought the storms would have ripped the last of the leaves from the trees, yet some still cling. Most of the trees are bare, but there are still those stubborn few.
I'm hearing that this fall is not peculiar to Upstate NY. Mike lives in the Detroit area and writes (Tues., Nov. 8th): Our color here really developed quickly and peaked during the past week. With the windstorm we had this past Sunday, a lot more trees are finally bare. However, even the Detroit News noted the lateness of the color development and leaf drop that we are experiencing this year.
