Damn we’re in D4?

Not yet, and probably not likely either.  Would probably take another month without rain to get there.  We've been in D3 going on 2 weeks now.

CO weekend seems to be peak near the lakes region anecdotally. I know up in the Whites it was becoming stick season at that time or close to it. Obviously some years it differed by a week or so.

Noticed a big change in leaves today driving home from work..

Agreed.  This cold snap triggered the leaves to accelerate color change.

I know that many think of Columbus Day as usually the peak but I don't think that's always been true.  We picked our wedding date 20 years ago, September 29th, because that always seemed closer to the regular peak, if there is such a thing.  I'm not sure if there is any data that could really back this up, just my memories through the years.   

Yeah for sure Columbus Day is past peak up here pretty much every year, but it’s when the tourists come to look at the leaves.  Every year they say “looks like we should’ve been here a week or two ago.”  It’s still nice viewing but it’s that uniform orange by then...the red and yellow is gone and there’s a lot of bare trees as well.

Thank you and to you too.  We were 2001 as well.  It was quite a time 3 weeks after 9/11 and worrying about all the travel some of our relatives were doing and the fact that we had plane tickets to England for our honeymoon.

Yeah, I recall going through the airports and there was basically National Guard troops patrolling the terminal.  We took a cruise.

That borders the periphery of the backyard/ woods. It’s kind of a diagonal line that stretches from the woods up to behind the house. There’s a public hiking trail way back in the woods that goes for many miles thru the woods in town 

I found the stone fences so natural. Did you or previous owners erect it? Is it older than your residence or the others in the area? It is graceful and unobtrusive what better boundary than earths own stone. As always ....

My front and back property have stone walls. I am always amazed at the stone masons from the 1600 1700 1800 hundreds who took such time to build intricate walls. Such beauty as this stock pic shows

That's what I understood. If the euro guidance keeps coming in earlier and earlier with the upgrades they do...it's going to make the GEFS irrelevant. 

Where can you find this 35 day monster?

Yeah all of those rocks left in moraines from the last glacial maximum became property boundaries all around New England. lol

Yeah we nice and smooth soil here in the ctrv.  My uncle from Gardner Mass when he came down to visit me last year hadn't been to the valley where I live in over 15 years and forgotten how much flat  and fertile farmland was in this area.  I probably have to travel about 10 miles east or west to start hitting the stone walls.

I always found those stone walls rather fascinating. That must have been a hell of a job to do years ago when everyone owned 100 acres. Not to mention people were 4'10" tall.
