phaeton Posted August 18, 2004 Share Posted August 18, 2004 Say.... This might be a question for Tedster, or maybe i'm just smoking crack. The last couple of weeks where I'm at (Southeastern Wisconsin, USA), we had an unusual spell of weather. It was much cooler than usual (50s and 60s Fahrenheit) and rainy. Since then, i'm noticing that all the trees are changing colours, some types of them are completely bare already, and there are geese flying south... Starting in the first week of August! Somehow i don't recall any of this supposed to be happening until about mid-September or so, and even then it would still get fairly warm in the daytime, but cool off at night. Trees change colour but don't really start losing leaves by the truckload until the end of Sept, etc. People think i'm silly when i say this, but it even smells like fall. Certain seasons have a "smell" to them, or at least -I- can smell it. Haven't met anyone else who will agree with me on that though. Is anyone else in the general mid-western U.S. seeing this too? How about in Canada, where the cold front swept down from? If the law of "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction", does this mean that in some places like Australia, where they drive on the wrong side of the road, they've launched into an early spring? Tedster, is this at all a cyclical phenomenon, similar or related to the El Nino/La Nina, Twin Hurricanes, etc? Btw, it *is* temperature that throws the switch in the trees, right? right? Or maybe i'm wrong on all accounts. I did just turn 30, afterall... Dr. Seuss: The Original White Rapper . WWND? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
