This is the time of year when the roads are full of leaf peepers. The foliage is at full color, and it is spectacular! I am always surprised to see so many tour buses full of people who have come “from away” to drive around and see our foliage. I have to admit that when I stop to look at it, the colors are so vibrant and beautiful that it is hard to not “love” this season – at least for a few days! But when we get a good wind-storm, all of the beauty will ripped from the limbs and on the ground. Then a period of stark, gray, nakedness will be the view until the snow covers the earth with it’s white sparkly blanket.
