Last weekend, on the beach, temps were in the mid-80's. Went for a walk last Sunday, all the trees were still green. Looked and felt like Summer.
This weekend, cooler. Never even hit 70° And the trees are turning. The maples, especially, are coloring fast, and lots of other trees are already shedding leaves. Sure, Fall usually arrives in September. But it also, usually, takes a bit longer to ramp up. One week a few understory plants are yellowing, the next it gets a bit cooler, then the maples go, followed by other trees. This year it seems to have all hit in a few days.
Driving around McLean I saw an old VW Bug, a 59. Talked to the driver who is the original owner. His Dad bought it for him, new, in 59. Pics at the end of this set.
