Yeah, I know, I know, the title of the post belongs more on Cedar's Mountain than it does here, but the original title for the post (Relaxing In New England) didn't do anything for me once I got a good look at the contents of the folder.
We are now officially celebrating Autumn 2010, specifically Halloween and Thanksgiving, on this blog. And sometime in May we will be celebrating Winter 2010. Sometime in August, we should be celebrating Spring 2011 on this blog, specifically a series called "A Day In The Life Of Winnie The Pooh".
Anywho, let's enjoy the splendor that is Autumn and those two adult oriented holidays called Halloween and Thanksgiving.
And thus, another Halloween has come and gone. Now we're heading into November with the remaining three. This was taken on the route that I usually take during my weekly Saturday morning errand walk. I think it's pretty cool on how the front yard was carpet bombed (see, I can too use a destructive military word in a positive way) with leaves.
Autumn in Newington as seen on my street. I think that the main reason as to why the trees already look semi-bare was because we didn't have that wet of a summer in 2010. Had a nasty ass winter, but we'll talk about that in couple of months or so.
I do want to point out one major pet peeve of mine that you can see in this photo: leaves in the street. Our town, like most others, has a leave collection, and in order to facilitate that collection, all stray leaves must be racked to the curb.
Not the street. When you rake leaves into the street, and believe you me, there are some neighborhoods that are simply polluted with leaves in the street, two things happen: streets become impassable and become prone to severe flooding because the sewer grates are clogged with leaves.
