Already Fall

posted by on August 7 at 10:37 AM


Leaves on the trees outside my office window… are turning yellow, with distinct hints of red. Is it fucking fall already?

Early fall. Another sign of global warming!

We have no summer in Seattle. No proper summer, anyway.

I suspect the turning color indicates some drought stress. You'll still be able to sip sit outside and sip lemonade for a few weeks here.

doesn't car exhaust accelerate leave-changing?

Thank God. This has been the least painful summer in Seattle since I acclimated to the climate. I mean, the first few years I lived here, I laughed at the people who bitched about 80 degree weather, since summer meant 110 degrees to me, but now, 80 kills me and I'm glad we've had a mild, mild, mild summer. Bring on the rain.

ah, weather. another sign of global warming.

I second Willa's comment. We've got leaves turning here in MI b/c, until recently, we were experiencing a somewhat severe shortage of water.

4 and 9 have it.

Leaves will change color and fall off due to a variety of stresses--cold weather is one possible stress, but drought is another. It's probably just too dry for your trees. It doesn't mean it's fall yet.

I agree with @4 - but, actually, lower water is actually due to global warming - if you weren't a Seattleite you'd realize our weather is shifting to more of a prairie hill type from the prior pattern.

How could it be too dry when we were getting all that rain 2 or 3 weeks ago with all the weather guys saying that July is usually rather dry?

(note to ECB: I know there are weather women, I just didn't hear them saying this.)

Leprechauns paint the leaves in the middle of the night. They only do it to trees belonging to people who swear too much in print. MY trees - and the trees in front of the Seattle times - are still bright green, thank you very much.

i've noticed some flowers in my neighborhood that normally bloom once a year are now blooming a second time. i don't mind.
