October Wind Storm

Just a few days ago, the trees were full of colorful leaves.  The colors have been so vibrant, I’ve almost run off the road looking at the beautiful trees, even in my own neighborhood.  In the park across from where I am living, the trees have turned from green, to yellow, to orange and red.

Today we have a high wind warning, and the last of the leaves are flying off the trees.  I tried to catch some of the leaf movement in photographs.  With the winds today gusting up to 56 mph, tomorrow there will be few leaves left on the trees.

The day after the wind storm, Oct. 27th, it is still pretty windy.  The trees are nearly stripped bare of leaves.

All the leaves are gone
