Fall Colors, going, going, gone

This photograph of Watts Bar Lake was taken 2 weeks ago close to the Caney Creek Marina. This marina is between Kingston and Rockwood. The leaves were still hanging on, but not much color. The leaves are like this all over East Tennessee this year. When the rain starts everybody says there goes the last of the leaves. It rained all day on Monday, then on Tuesday I noticed a line of trees still covered in leaves, even with a hint of bright yellow scattered throughout it. Everybody is saying when the leaves hang on like this the winter is going to be a COLD winter. This doesn't predict the snows, that is by the fogs in August. A cold hard winter is also predicted by the mast crop, well in our area the mast crop is huge this year. I don't like cold weather. Wish I could go to Florida for the winter, but that does not pay the bills.

Going-Going-Gone is RIGHT, Leedra. I noticed though when we drove to Tullahoma for Thanksgiving, they still have alot of color down there (south of Nashville)... Ours is almost gone. We'll probably have to blow and rake one more time.

I judge winter by acorn production. Last year we had an abundance of them and temps seemed to stay in the 0 to -25 range a lot of the time. This year, we have very few acorns, so guess I'll just have to wait and see what Mother Nature brings. It may cost me a fortune to feed all the birds and critters this year.

Good Morning Leedra,
Nice pictures. In late Oct. & early Nov. we found lots of colorful trees in the Smokies. I still enjoy looking at them and showing them to family and friends.
