An Autumn Observation

Share this on:

Has anyone in southeastern PA noticed how beautiful and brilliant the autumn leaves are right now?  It seems we’re at our peak, which typically occurs in mid-October.  Even though the season is called Fall, most of the leaves haven’t done that yet. As much as I appreciate the variety of vibrant colors, it is a little strange.

It hasn’t fared well for many trees a few miles north of here when a freak, icy snowstorm hit the area a few days ago.  The branches and ever-present leaves coated with the glistening snow were just too much for some trees, and lost limbs were the result.  And yet, today’s temperatures are expected to be back up in the mid-to-high 60s.  I can’t remember when Thanksgiving looked and felt like this!  Personally, I think it has something to do with this little problem we have of global climate change.
