We raked up the yard today. We really couldn't do it earlier than now because the trees around us were still full of leaves. It's been an odd fall as far as leaves go. They really didn't come down until about Wednesday. I'm not sure why.
Seriously, the weather has been pretty normal for the past couple of months. Maybe a little cooler than normal but not drastically. And yet the leaves were late turning color and then late falling down. Is that because we had such a late spring? Dunno.
Anyway, we had snow on Tuesday. A real snow, though not the winter storm that we were warned about. Come Wednesday, they started coming down as if there were people in the trees with leaf blowers. I don't remember ever seeing that before.
Anyway, we've raked and we're ready for winter.
