See ‘ya Summer

| September 15, 2011 | 3 Comments

Ahhhhh… It is about time. These two lovely leafs are from the “Winter Indicator” tree across the street from our house in Park City, UT – elevation 7,100′.  The tree often changes color over 3-4 days, but for some reason this year it seemed to go all in one shot.  I may have just missed the early changes, but being a skiing optimist, I’d like to think that the sudden change can only mean one thing – it is going to be a HUGE winter.  :)

    Must be a good sign. I’m an optimist. This time of year I see signs of a good winter everywhere!

    That’s good news – that was a couple of rough weeks there, tolerating summer.

    I usually walk outside to get the mail…..naked (at about the time everyone is leaving for work). If there is shrinkage and I am forced back into my house suddenly, then I know winter is near.
