Looks like this will end leaf season early

At least you had some pretty leaves. All of the leaves in MO are brown right now. The drought really took its toll on the fall color this year.

I haven't been out near the Mississippi River, but it might be better there. I might go over to the BNSF's Hannibal Sub and check it out this weekend.

Troy, leaves are GONE. Peak in most of this area was a couple weeks ago. Still a few trees yet to turn but they are turning brown. It's kinda blah right now and will stay that way until mid may. Sorry, bro.

I think Troy is staying south of Sandpatch, in which he should be ok. Peak is or just was on Alleghany this past weekend and the New River Gorge and Kanawha Valley is getting decent, but green is still visible in a lot of places. It's probably past peak along higher elevations in Beckley, but just now peaking in the valley. That's how our state is in the fall.. Very odd!

Fall colors are rather nice in Northern Tennessee, not quite peak yet, still some green trees left too, colors were nice on FIMX and the CN&OTP 3rd district, I bet the 2nd district up near Burnside will be real nice right now

I ran into someone who said that the hurricane they had a month or so ago weakened the leaves and that's why this leaf season in the North is so wacky. Who knows, the guy could be full of it... Leaves still pretty good still in the Bluefield area and up the NRV towards Radford. No consistent sun today, maybe tomorrow.

Some leaves down here but backyard leaves still some green in DC area. I am hoping to see decent leaves this weekend, actually getting out.
