It's Not Over 'Til the Last Leaf Floats to the Ground!

By October 23, 2013

Follow me on:

Last October, Frankenstorm Sandy plowed through New England, leaving only superleaves hanging on, and two years ago, a bizarre Halloweenter snow storm made a ghoulish mess of fall foliage and power lines. Thankfully, it looks like a cold snap is the worst we'll see as the month comes to a close this year, and we have the prospect of a Red Sox World Series championship to keep us warm.

As you can see in the latest view outside my window and in the photo at left, which I shot last Friday, dramatic autumn scenes continue to unfold here in Connecticut, and late-season leaf peepers won't be disappointed.

If you're visiting the Northeast this weekend, some of your best bets for spying lingering fall color will be in New Hampshire's Merrimack Valley (where you can stay for $87 at the Courtyard Nashua), on Cape Cod and New York's Long Island and in Connecticut's shoreline towns. Consult my Leaf Alert guide for state-by-state foliage reports that will lead you to the best places to see late-season fall color. There are plenty of fun fall events happening in the Northeast this weekend, too, so don't sit at home. Colder temps and the Major League Baseball season finale remind us that winter will be here all too soon!
