Carol in Florida left a great comment on the blog yesterday.
She has observed a few oddities with the trees and plants in west-central Florida over the recent days -- she says the native Florida elm is beginning to drop leaves already-- about 2 months early (usually late September) and the native choke cherry trees are also dropping their leaves about 6 weeks too early. She has also noticed that some of the native wildflowers are beginning to bloom, and they too, are about 4-6 weeks early.
So have you seen any "environmental" signs around your neck of the woods that we could be facing an early fall and potentially a long, cold winter?
I am curious to hear from all parts of the country.
