Indian Summer

After a couple of months of earthquakes, rain, hurricanes, rain, tornadoes, rain, floods, rain .... we have just had 5 days of Indian Summer.  Perfect days : dry (no rain!), warm but not hot, sunny but not blinding, breezy but no gusting winds, cool almost cold nights - a perfect Northeast Indian Summer.

After all of the wet weather it seemed like the trees were just drowning.  Weeks ago leaves started to turn brown & fall to the ground.  It didn't look like we would have our quintessential Fall colors this year. But this stretch of amazing weather has salvaged Fall for us.  Because so many trees have already lost their leaves it won't be ideal but but you'd be hard-pressed not to appreciate this.

This is why Fall is my favorite time of year in New York.
