Actually, it is too early for the leaves to change color here. Some of the Chinese Tallow are turning their pretty red, yellow, and orange. That is the only thing that they are good for, autumn color. The hardwoods turn color and drop their leaves beginning after the second week in December. Most all of the leaves will be down by the end of the year, except for the Live Oak and the trees that died during the drought. I don’t think there will be much color this fall except for the trash trees. Actually, there never really is, especially if you are used to the beautiful color in the autumn in Pennsylvania. The peak of the color there is usually the second or third week of October.
Woke up this morning to balmy, humid weather. This morning low temperature was in the mid 60’s. Since I didn’t watch any news yesterday, I don’t know what the high is supposed to be. My wife tells me that California had 130 mph winds and they will even affect the middle part of the United States. Santa Anna winds, I believe they are called.
Quick now, how high do you have to count to find a number that when spelled out has an “a” in it? It only took me a second or two to answer that, how long did it take you? Hope there is none of you out there still counting; 1, 2. 3. 4. . . . You all have a great day now, you hear?
