I wish we had some trees resembling those in the south and east. Most of our 'wild' trees are very short & scrubby, presumably because when they get tall the wind kills them. That trip to DC last month was amazing, if for no other reason than the scenery...most of the trees were just past peak colors. Gorgeous.

Update - it's now over freezing, but has been raining all day. Wondering when it will flood. The drive home yesterday was like going through a warzone involving only trees. 500,000 without power in Oklahoma; 250,000 without near me. Ours was out all night, but came on again this morning and has stayed (phew!).

Getting some pics together...stay tuned.

My guess is you don’t want to hear about how we’re still using the AC here.

Looks like you’re getting the rotten weather we’re supposed to get in the summer.
