When the day started, the trees were full of autumn color. It had been slowly creeping over the landscape in the last two weeks, and was really just reaching peak color – with reds, oranges, mahogany, dark gold, and greeny yellow. But cue up howling winds and rain in the forecast for tonight, just to make it extra spooky on Halloween. Which means tomorrow, the landscape will probably really look like Day of the Dead. Some year, it would be nice to just have a quiet All Hallow’s Eve, and still have November 1 arrive looking like just another fall day.
