Note also the dearth of leaves on the ground, even. They fell from the trees, and I swear within days they got swept/blown/gathered up. I didn't even see anyone come do it, they were just there one day and gone the next.
I have to admit, I'm a little bummed. We did get a pretty decent "fall" in Sacramento-- our neighborhood was lined with massive trees, and although it didn't happen till December they did turn brilliant colors and then fall, and I have great memories from last winter of the boys making a huge pile of leaves and jumping/running through it and just having a blast. When we moved here, I looked at all the trees and figured we'd get to do that all over again... and totally missed our chance. It does look like there's a second wave of trees turning right now, so maybe we'll go scout out some locations of freshly fallen leaves and try to fit in some leaf play before they are all gone, too.
