It is beginning to really look like late fall, with winter fast approaching. All the trees are beginning to lose their leaves, which means there are golden drifts of them scattered along the road as I head west toward work in the morning; driving home itís now too dark to see. The empty branches look a bit sad, but there is at least some color left, for a few more days. By Turkey Day, almost all the leaves will be gone, and some industrious types will use that holiday to clear the last bits of fall color from their lawns.
