We had a big wind come up overnight.  All the leaves went away!  I am 
I'm going on a trailride tomorrow and all I'm going to see is tree 

In addition to the leaves, the electricity went away.  I determined 
that just under
a third of the drivers know or care that you should treat a dead 
stoplight as a stop sign.
And I found that all the gas pumps had no power, so I might be doing 
spur of the moment hiking today if the power doesn't come back soon.   
only I'd worn my hiking boots instead of my cozy sheepskin boots.
