Valley leaves are starting to change
This past weekend I noticed that some of the maple trees in the valley and at elevation are beginning to show orange and yellow. I know it's not due to dry weather this year. Maybe it's due to a few nights in the 30s recently. Anyway, it's a good sign.
Are you living on the same planet as the rest of us?
A HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING.

It's about 65 right now in this classroom at WVSOM
The Greenbrier River was awfully warm last night....not that I wasn't studying or anything.
Heat wave got us up to 80.5 degrees yesterday, and 79.0 degrees today, up here in Davis.
Here too. Even though the last 2 days were finally Summer-like with mornings in the 70's and 90's for the high, it's been cold all Summer. Most mornings here have been 50-55.
I have noticed the poison ivy, virginia creeper, and some fruit trees like cherry and apple are turning and even dropping leaves as of this weekend. This shouldn't happen until sometime in September.
Doesn't mean much though by September/October we'll be looking at the usual Indian Summer and stretches of 80's. Followed by the usual warm, rainy Winter.
This heat wave is our Indian summer!
I noticed the leaves dropping off some trees up here in Mount Airy last Thursday. They turned color and dropped 90% in one week.
Should have noted earlier- there were scattered snow showers around Yellowstone Sunday night!
