Winds whipping across most of the country these days. You look at how some of these trees are being tossed about and it is amazing that any leaf manages to hold fast. All the leaves that are falling appear to be headed across the river (Iowa bound.) In our yard we have, over the years, lost several trees to past storms but still have the one big tree in the front yard. It is a pin oak and the leaves hold on until some time next spring. It looks great, it is full and a wonderful color. We love it.
