The End of Summer?

Let's see, today is August 25th.  Fall leaves are just around the corner but we are still dealing with hot summer temps, right?

Not so fast, Smallville!  Don't know about your part of the country but here in Ohio, Mother Nature seems to be a bit confused.  Our temps are in the 70's during the day and hover around the lower 50's at night -- most days and nights, at least.  A bit colder, we suppose, at tree top height.

And then to really mix things up, take a look at the accompanying pics.  No, this is not some sort of trick and no we didn't get them off the internet or take them a couple of years ago.  We took them a couple of hours ago on our way home from the historic sites.

Some locals have told us that this is a bit weird even for Ohio (which we think is sort of weird any way -- had to include that for some of our Ohio readers!).


So, if the weather is already fall like in August, what is it going to be like at the end of October, when we try to drive nearly 2000 miles to go home? Yikes!

We probably should mention that most trees are not like this. Just a few here and there.  But it makes a better story if we let you think all the leaves have changed and are falling from the trees.

Honesty has its draw backs.

Ugh! Send some of that cool air here! We are having record setting heat - almost 100 degrees! Kids at lindsie's school have been passing out at school (no a/c). They finally told the kids that if they want to go home they would be excused.

I can't believe the leaves are already starting to change.
