Haven't your low temps in WI been way above normal lately? I am sure that will have some impact on the peak color timing.

Had alot in 30's and 40's Dryness up north here helping color change more than anything. Some places had a few frost already and we have only had 1 so far.Looked at map some areas at 75% already. Sawyer county near Hayward is that %.

We still don't have much here in central Wisconsin, some sumacs mostly. They are always the first to change. Temps have been in the thirties and forties the last two nights, no frost yet.

And speaking of the higher price of gas as you go farther north, we were shocked. Seems like every 100 miles we traveled it went up ten cents. We had gas here Waupaca/Stevens Point at $3.64, in Peshtigo it was $3.84, we decided to gas up in Marinette at $3.89. By the time we got near Lake Superior it was $4.09 everywhere!!

Hitting the garage sale circuit today, I was surprised to see some totally orange trees and with lots of leaves on the ground already. I think its prorably what someone said, the drought here on the east side sent them into shock!

This was Labor Day weekend when we went up to Tequamenon Fall in the upper penisula.

I think it's at $3.69 here now.

This is where the fall color change is around here. There might be a tree or two that has changed but most are just starting.

I noticed the fall colors really died off around Plover/Stevens Point. Anywhere north though and you have some spectacular pastels.

This is the drive I did yesterday! North of Medford up to Ashland the colors were nice, although giving it one more week might be better, and the cloudiness/rain wasn't ideal, either. I bought gas in Cable on the way back down and it was about 30 cents/gallon more expensive than father south. Ashland was actually a bit cheaper.
