Yes, we are seeing the signs of an early fall around here, too. I've noticed an abundance of acorns on the ground out back, too. My son and I were talking about how that can relate to the length and depth of winter. I think I'll bring home a few more bags of PA's finest. :) Lisa

I think the early leaf changing is due more to the super wet spring & then hotter & dryer summer at least around here, heck it hit 90 again today & supposed to be hot tomorrow also. A lot of farmers here lost corn crops but at least got in some soy, it was too wet to plant & then the ones that did got flooded out. With all the crop loss across the country look out for price changes soon.

Sort of!

I'm stopping over at Matt's to pick up a Lil' Heater to take the chill out. My 220lb dog decided he wants a heated floor to lay on this winter. ;)

Up here in this cesspit, I've been seeing a few branches changing here & there, but nothing like in years past. For the past several years we had trees start to turn during the 3rd week of August! This year we are a few weeks past that, but not half the amount of changing trees. No idea why. I did notice that the pumpkin & tomato plants died back quickly after Irene passed through.

Leaves changing is always a depressing sight for me. I like fall, but I honestly hate winter about as much as my state government. :D

This Winter is going to as cold or colder than last year. This Summer was not nearly as hot as last Summer at all. If you look at the overall trend for the past 10 years, every climate zone in the United States has cooled significantly on average. Get used to cold Winters, they are here to stay, and will become increasingly colder for the remainder of our life times.
