That first glimpse of sun, just at sunset, was greeted with a mental cheer and a sign of relief from me. The drying out process after the one-two punch of Hurricanes Irene and Lee (and perhaps even Katia should get a mention) still has a ways to go. At least the process has begun and no hurricanes are in the forecast.
Now I am wondering, what will all this rain mean for the fall color change, which is now only about 4 weeks away? Will it make it later? Prettier? Longer? I will have to wait and see. I expect it will have some impact, but just what that might be is still unknown.
In any event, it's not raining today. No rain is in the forecast, and as soon as the forest dries out just a bit more, I'll be down on a trail, looking to see whatever I can see.
