The leaves here are turning, too, although within a few miles of here, they're already completely turned (the lake appears to have some effect on the local climate). Yesterday morning was sunny and crisp but not now, oh no. Been raining all morning and it's getting colder as the day goes on, I think.
I'm at just under 500 feet above sea level. It's been cold and most all the trees have turned. Light drizzling snow mixed with rain now and then, melts instantly.
Adironacks are supposed to be getting up to 6 inches by tomorrow, if the conditions are right.
" Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background of countless minor scenes and interiors, (not the official surface courteousness of the Generals, not the few great battles) of the Secession war; and it is best they should notï¿½the real war will never get in the books." ~ Walt Whitman
At the moment, it's 3deg C with a 6mph wind and it's clear, but that doesn't matter cos it's after midnight and i'm in bed.
However, tomorrow the max temp will be 4degs, and minimum 2 degs, but it'll get colder towards the weekend with winds up to 17 mph.
This is probably very mild in comparison to where a lot of you lot live, but it has been a sudden drop in temperature, after having the hottest October 27th since 1880, where it was over 22 degrees in the north of Scotland.
And this, combined with this country's inability to adapt to fluctuations in temperature, means that I end up sitting through lectures shivering my arse off cos the heating hasn't been switched on and the door's letting a draught in. Bah!
