While we’ve been basking in the warmth of an early October “heat wave,” the fall foliage around us has been changing quickly and now the colors have essentially reached their peak. The latest fall foliage outlook from the Minnesota DNR has placed the majority of the state in the “peak” category while most of our corner of the state is getting really close. If you haven’t been able to get out and fully enjoy those colors, now is the time to make an extra effort to do that as a large storm system to our west is going to really crank up the winds over the next couple of days and even spread some showers across our area over the weekend and early next week, potentially bringing an end to the best part of our fall color viewing this season. We’ve been enjoying all sorts of viewer photos in the past few weeks showing the brilliance of our colors and hope to receive many more before this autumn is finished. Thanks to those who have been sharing those pictures with us. We’d love to see more!
