Taken a short while after this morning’s snowfall, the image above shows the same leaf seen in my post last week, …which is shown below.

About one month ago Hurricane Isaias brushed our area with 70 mph wind gusts carrying an abundance of salt water onto vulnerable trees and shrubs. Our Red Maple Tree suffered a significant loss of foliage facing the east side.

Below: Normal view at this time of year, (from a previous year.) Original leaves would already have been losing color saturation.

As we reel from the Covid-19 crisis, staying in place is critical to contain the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, in our backyard today, life went on as usual.

February 2nd is Groundhog Day here in the United States (and Canada.) Although the tradition begs for a relatively large imagination, lore has it that this particular rodent, Phil, who lives just outside town, can forecast the weather. As it was my wife’s birthday, we added this somewhat iconic town, Punxsutawney, to our weekend road trip through parts of Pennsylvania. So, despite some issues with snow, we did join the throngs of Phil worshippers, and made it back home by nightfall. Oh, and he did NOT see his shadow, indicating an early spring!
