Fall Foliage in Review

I walked outside today and spotted a quarter inch of snow on the car roofs and on the piles of fallen leaves. This prompted a "WTF!?" and made me wonder whether our string of Indian Summer-ish fall days were coming to a close. Indeed, a look at the 10-day forecast shows a nasty run of 50 degree highs with the occasional scattered snow showers (more WTF!?'s to go around!).

So I thought it would only be fitting to say goodbye to a wonderful fall with a couple recent pictures of the fall foliage.

Walking down a side-street in Georgetown -- just minutes away from cupcakes...

Goodbye Fall '08 -- we hardly knew ya.

Yeah, I think that the first one would have been comparably impressive if only I could have gotten another 200 yards closer. But yeah, some parts of DC were looking amazing when I visited.

You are so close to my old house in Georgetown in that second photo. We lived at the corner of Prospect and Bank.

Sigh.
