Some of us play chess with it daily and try to stay one pawn ahead. The stone fence in the photo, do you know how far back it goes? As always .....

Is that Cobble Hill in Brooklyn?  My sister used to live there many moons ago.

Yes sir. Historical or hysterical depending on your politics and if you have to deal with city landmarks to get permission to do work on your own row house. I’m on Tompkins Place between Court and Clinton, Kane and Degraw. Where, if I may ask, did you’d sister live? As always ....

Right, I'm not saying you went all Kevin and said it was going to be a sea of brown like he does most years. 

There probably will be spots, even higher up little more dull where they radiate----hollows, etc.

I did think it would hurt it and maybe it did in spots...but perhaps Will is right in that the ball was already rolling and it didn't matter too much.

I'm not "arguing" anything - 

But, that < 40 statement is a falesy ...and so is that relative rare phenomenon that still claims lives today anyway - another false equivalency -

I'm not saying life expectancy hasn't benefitted - I was talking about the 'entitlement' and its ugliness.  

There needs to be some sort of concerted virtuosity involved in the advantages that tech provides ... but no sooner than we evolve this wonder as a species...it's schemed -

Fallacy.   It took my awhile ro reconjure falsy....back to adolescence

i generally agree but make no mistake-life before modern medicine (antibiotics, vaccination for diseases like polio) was very hard and often unpleasant.   “What’s it leave in....what’s it leave out”-Bob Seger in “Against the Wind”.

I'd say we drought by our standards. But, it looks like a pattern change starting mid week next week.

We shall see. He’s killed everything . Noyes said this morning he has serious doubts on significant rain 

Now I am confident. I'm not saying 6" of rain is coming, but that most certainly is a pattern change and a lot of us will get much needed rainfall over the next two weeks. #Scooterknows

This foliage is absolutely insane.  I think it’s more vibrant down on mid slope to valley.  I’ve never seen the valley reds/oranges this neon...and the lower elevations look to peak before the mountain now.

Best foliage is 750ft up through 2,000-2,500ft by far.  Still a lot of early light greenish yellow foliage up high.

Usually I chide Kevin for his drought definitions but this water year Oct to Oct i am so far 25 inches below normal.  Now not yet a long term severe drought definitely a drought by hydrological definition

a few of us mentioned it will end, not saying it was not impressive, but holding on like it will last forever is silly.

It's a shallow well so it needs groundwater. I have no frame of reference for how full the basin should look so maybe it will be fine. I am getting nervous however.

Our dug well is only 8' deep but has a good spring as its source; the normal level is at 5' but it's now down by 21".  Was down 24" in 2002, but the 3' depth means about 300 gallons, though the bottom 50 may be below the foot valve.  0.15" for the month so far and 0.03" over the past 3 week.
Some very nice reds and yellows in our area, though right near the house it's fairly dull, as always.  Approaching 50% change, about 10 days ahead of average - 3 straight mid-20s mornings will do that.

FTLOG, What?

Only if the tree is sitting in the middle of a  backyard fire pit.

........toasting marshmallows on Christmas Eve while singing Christmas carols.

LET IT SNOW (altered for annual summer heat waves)

 

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the A/C is delightful
And since we’ve no trips to take
Let it bake, let it bake, let it bake.

 

 

GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER

Grandma got run over by a ten-speed
Jogging to a clambake Christmas Eve
You might say there’s no such thing as cyclists
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

Ill, maybe, but here at least it would take a week with 3"+ to inflict a fatal would.  Not seeing it.

I just mean the pattern in general. Quite different compared to what we had.

I'm kind of bummed it's so early. Was hoping to have some visible in a couple of weeks. I'm sure it will still be good in the lakes region.

Yeah I was going to take Monday the 5th off with the wife to do a NNE day drive maybe over to the Whites and back through NEK of VT for some foliage viewing... I think we are going to go this Monday now.  I'm afraid the 5th will be too late for this northern band from here to Alex/Phin.

That is true for the western world but Traditional Asian medicines and Indian Ayurvedic medicine were resulting in much longer life spans than we’re seen in European cultures.

It seems like every other year,  just when foliage is peaking, we get a screaming Sou’ Easter to suck all of the leaves off the trees like an autumn grinch.

It took "me" awhile ;)

I know these autocorrects sometimes assume we are dipshit 14-year olds loitering in Mall food courts and insist on running back along sentences to pattern match dipshit speak
