Exactly right! I noticed a lot of leaves in our backyard since late August. We had about ten days of wind. The summer was very hot, high 80s-low 90s, and not much rain. Trees are changing color and appear thinner for early September. The wind has lessened and the temps have dropped to 50s-60s already. My balcony garden which should have lasted into October is about shot. It's got me wondering too.

Oh, we went to the swamps today and saw some geese, so the migration is beginning.
