In just over two weeks, the bright colors in the trees have faded, and most of the leaves have either fallen, or been ripped out of the trees by the last few rain and windstorms.
Joyce and I spent most of Sunday mowing, grinding, and sweeping up the leaves from the yard, and Jennifer helped me the day before mounting the new door on the shed, and moving the summer porch furniture into storage.
We’ve gone from a comfortable isolation, to feeling exposed to our neighbors now clearly visible through the trees. Latest weather forecasts are now talking about the possibility of snow accumulation Thursday night into Friday morning. Snowsticks are now up along the driveway and road. Fall is just about over.
