Leaf-O-Meter

October 26:  Did I really not post on that many days?  The foliage is decidely well beyond peak now.  Looking back at the series of pictures, I would classify “peak color” as happening during the first week of October, the pictures from the 3, 4 and 5th or so are just right there.  Hope you enjoyed the series and I hope we get a chance to do it again next year!

Here is the September 20th update:

Leaf-o-Meter 9/20/06 Click for MUCH larger image

Bill’s Mom sent along a tremendous idea that unfortunately I was slow in implementing. Seems that Yankee Magazine, headquarted somewhere up New England way, decided to let people know the state of their fall foliage not with some silly map or verbal description, but by taking a picture every day and posting it on their website. At least that is what she said, but I can’t find the day to day pictures on the site. Anyway, they were going to take a picture of one tree outside their office as an indicator of the “state of the leaves.”

In an endevour to go one better, I offer up this view Rib Mountain to show how the foliage is coming along. Weather allowing, I will post the same few every day until the trees are bare — or something like it. So when your out of town friends ask “how do the leaves look up there now?” You can email them the Leaf-O-Meter link.

By the way, be careful clicking on the larger image if you are on a slow connection. I uploaded a larger than normal picture to show off the new camera I (finally! the reason for the delay) got this week. Don’t know how to work all the bells and whistles yet, but my goodness it takes fabulous pictures!

Without further ado, here is the Leaf-O-Meter:

  1. what do you mean you got a new camera, and I told you about the leaf picture. Well give the lady some credit!

  2. Yes, that would be Bill’s Mom — Gail Coady — who is given complete credit in the opening words of this post, which she apparently failed to read. 🙂

  3. in your mom’s defense- I don’t see where she got credit- maybe our browsers just skipped her completely and went straight past the credit!

  4. Well, now you have to click on the “Read the rest of this entry »” link on the front page or click on the headline (like you did :-)) to see the whole story. But here is first sentence of the original post in all its glory: “Bill’s Mom sent along a tremendous idea that unfortunately I was slow in implementing.”

    And maybe if you used Firefox the page would display properly. 😉
