Thanks for wandering in. Join me as I jaywalk through the thoughts of columnists, sports figures and sometimes mine.

On October 10th, 2009, I opened the front door only to be greeted by this:
I love snow and while I was happy to see the white stuff on the ground, the biologist in me is a little worried for the trees in the region, many of whom have only just begun the transition to Fall (leaves changing colors, that is).
Luckily, the snow did not stay long enough to break branches but the frost damage may be severe. Folks who have lived here for decades cannot recall a single snowfall that occurred before the leaves had begun to change colors. Should I be watching out for frogs and locusts now?
