We had a big storm yesterday. It was really windy all night then it rained all the next day. By 4:30 in the afternoon it was almost completely dark outside. It made me want to go to bed by 6 p.m. But look at today!
Many of the big-leaf maples lost ALL their leaves overnight, but these managed to hang on. I noticed that when the trees lose their leaves, it's sunnier around here, at least at ground level.
