We had forgotten how winter feels like after picture-perfect incredible summer. We had huge windstorm yesterday with gusts upto 50mph all day long. We went straight to Winter and skipped fall.

Wind shook all tress, dried loose orange red fall leaves acted as sails and intensified wind velocity. In my neighborhood, beautiful display of orange, yellow, red fall colors was gone in 6 hours….

Comparatively little damage in my backyard – Pea supports were down, Zucchini plants uprooted (it was time anyway…) and raspberry cane broken (sad).
