When will the leaves fall

Every year the leaves fall later and later.I remember trecking thru leaves this time a year to go trick or treating as a kid.This year there just turning color.With it getting colder,and daylight savings,(which does not save me time)this fall will be a nightmare.Clean ups in the snow,cant wait.

Man, you're telling me. It would be one thing if the grass was still growing full force. I hate waiting for leaves.

They're coming down slowly here. Perfect for us to just run through weekly on most accounts to stay ahead of the game. We just got some real hard frosts this week, now some wind and they should be mostly down for the big push.

Real slow here in SE PA too.

Matter of fact I just looked outside, my maples are fully green!

Some have turned here and there, but nothing has given me problems mowing yet. Just regular mowing....here and there I have to mulch them up, but the season is really late for some reason. Likely because of the 80 degree temps we had the beginning of the month for a week or two. But we've had some REAL hard frosts and a few nights in the upper 20's.

Who knows.
