Last night was our first deep freeze, 22 degrees. Went out this morning for six miles, mostly in the woods. The season has lingered this year, many of the leaves are still on and in color. The honeylocust are down almost 100%, the orange osage along the banks came down virtually overnight, I'd say the sugar maples are 30% down, and many of the white oaks still have most of their wine red leaves.

The cold will hasten the end of the color season, but for this morning my run was dotted with radiance.
