We have had a pretty dry, cool last 1/2 of October. The colors are as pretty as they ever get here .. which is not much since we have few hardwoods - mostly firs and cedars and huge maples with leaves that get orange brown. But now it is beginning to rain and Mr. weather has rain for as far as he cares to look. Usually the wind blows real good on about Nov 11 and that is when all the leaves fall! We'll let you know how that comes out.
