Leafless

So I was driving to work this morning.

The rain had just started as a few small drops on my windshield.

As I drove past the houses in my neighborhood, I noted that the trees were devoid of leaves.

Since we were in late fall, the natural expectation was that they’d be on the ground in people’s yards, in bags in front of their houses, in the gutters along the streets, or filling the rain gutters of the houses.

Maybe even on roofs, near the splits common on many new england homes.  A place for leaves to gather to mark the season and to annoy the residents.

But this morning, not many a leaf in sight.

Oh sure, in the brush between some houses there were some caught in the weeds and tall grass.

However because of the long warm fall this year the trees, lawns, gutters, rain gutters and roofs – all clean.

Just an observation that I needed to record.
