It’s a Feb sun angle with most vegetation going dormant. I don’t understand the concern.

We are trying to tell them.

Would like the empty ponds and lakes to fill up going into a dry winter. Nothing dormant here. Still picking ripe and green tomatoes and there’s new yellow flowers . With the rest of the month a torch who knows when stuff stops taking water

Funny thing is our foliage in the area is still a week or more ahead of the lower elevations who have had a couple frosts. The colder daytime highs has  a bigger effect than frosts

Well here looks a bit different. Surprisingly, it didn't all melt today. Looks like we may end up with 48+ hours of snowcover in mid October, which seems pretty impressive. And of course I just got my shipment of flower bulbs that I need to plant lol! But that should be any day now

That’s not true. Frosts hasten it. Even PF notes the colors were coming on quicker where they had frosts in September.

Yeah theres no doubt in my mind the 4 days of mins in the 20s there in September cranked up the foliage.  The valley went at the same time as the higher elevations, when it’s normally two weeks separated.  The maples went bright red in the valley before the elevations...there was a period there when no real color was happening above 2,000ft while reds were bursting down low...night time radiation cold definitely played a big role IMO.

I was quite busy with the battery operated pole saw limbing some trees to get a better view of the areas that we set up in, We jumped one deer, We're hunting on my nephews property and its just been freshly logged, The logger told us he has seen about 8-10 deer in there and a couple big bucks and another two smaller ones and whole bunch of does, There's tracks everywhere on the property.

Got down to 29º last night. Your tropical climate is not a comparison for the rest of SNE  ;-)

Has little to do with vegetation.  It's about filling up the reservoirs and replenishing the watertable.
