    Fall in upstate NY? We were experiencing a 32F temperature, a thick blanket of mist, and our first real frost of the season, when I woke up this morning! I think winter's sneaking up on us pretty soon here. Heheh. I'll have to dig out some of the pictures from a couple mornings ago and add to the "upstate NY picture gallery". :D :happy:

    It looks like you are either in the Catskills or the foothills of the Adirondacks, yes? I could be wrong, but I've traveled through them in the last few months and those look like they could be. :shrug:

    We are located near Buffalo, NY. Gorgeous sunny morning today, but the temp was around 35F. Glad I got the last of the tomatoes picked.

    It's still fall until it's in the low 20's, the leaves are gone and snows a flying, CountryGoalie. Nope, not in the 'dacks or Catskills- good old Broome County not far from the PA border. We had our first hard frost last night too, it was 30 degrees this morning when I got up, foggy too.

    I didn't get all my maters picked, Charleen, but I got most of them. Cleaned up the acorn squash yesterday too. Now, with the frost, I'll be able to put away the beets too.

    Thanks all, I've always thought NY in the fall was near to heaven.

    What can I say, NYC is like a big anchor. If you all would do your job and just chop of NYC, then you could be respectable again...

    Oh Stacy it reminds me of Clarks Summit so much. I showed my daughter, poor little western girl. She thinks red leaves only happen in people's yards since our native fall foliage is yellow, except for the bit of orange that we have right now that the western larch have turned and are getting ready to drop their needles.
    Pay no attention to Bob, compared to Idaho, Ohio is as blue as NY. :p
    Not ALL upstaters. My aunt and uncle up in Ballston Lake nearly killed each other last pres election because he went for Kerry. And he actually told me he would vote for Hillary! (gulp). Just so you know, he's not related to me by blood.

    It reminds me of a glorious weekend 30 years ago when I visited a classmate that lived in Castle Creek. You are right...it is heaven on earth in the fall...post us another pic in 3 months, however, and I will remember why I chose to return to Florida...hurricanes and all!

    LOL, Jan. Castle Creek is about 15-20 minutes from my house. I *like* the winter and snow, it's my down time. Curl up by the woodstove with some needlework or a good book, sip steaming hot soup with homemade bread...heaven. I could do without the 4 layers of clothes from January thru March but, all in all, it's worth it.

    Added: forgot to mention that there's snow in the forecast for Sunday night- just flurries tho.
