    For about a week now here in CT you can feel a total change in the atmosphere. Daytime highs have been in the 60s & 70s with overnight lows in the upper 40s & 50s. Just a week before this it was still in the upper 80s daytime. Hasnt been humid lately either. Some of the maples down in the river valley have started changing colors already. I think the fun in the sun is pretty much over guys. Few more weeks till we strap up the leaf boxes.:eek: (the only thing that gets me through fall is knowing snow season is a couple months around the corner)

    I have noticed that as well up here in Maine that some of the maple trees leaves are starting to change and starting to fall off the trees. Hopefully we will have a good snowy winter this year payup The lows at night up here have been in the low 40's highs during the day have been in the high 60's to 70's

    The swamp maples out by a pond at my house are really starting to tuen red. I would say 60% of the swamp maple leaves have turned already.

    we have been doing minor cleanup also, but its just around the corner. I feel that we should have a decent winter season this year,if you watch nature at all you have probably noticed that the oaks are dropping nuts like crazy, id like to think that they know its going to be snowy so they are providing the squirrels with plenty of food for a long hard winter............

    Looks like the weather is getting warmer here too. His of 87 and lows in the upper 60s for mid week. El Nino is kicking in they say with a warmer wetter winter which of course will lead to ice storms:cry:
