November arrived with half an inch of rain and then a wild, cold, and windy day. Leaves were torn from many trees and my blue pyramid blew down. It's a light and flimsy thing, not anchored to the ground. I'll bring it in for winter.
Before the wind, on Halloween morning, the black gum at the bridge was spectacular. Today it has only a few leaves barely hanging on. What a difference a windy day makes at this time of year.
That's how fall behaves. It gets all duded up in fancy finery and then has fun blowing everything down.
