First Hard Frost

The temperature dipped into the 20s yesterday morning and left swaths of frost across the Bald Spot at Carleton College. The cold triggered leaf-drop for many trees that had been holding onto their brilliant foliage for what seemed like longer than usual this fall; golden leaves were falling like rain all around town.

How pretty! But BRRRR! We've had unseasonably warm nights in Berkeley, which has been great for Tuesday night softball. Of course, we comment on how lovely it is out and then have to wonder aloud if it's an effect of global warming...
