Re: Fall Tour

Actually it takes about 2 weeks for the color to move form northern NH
down to the seacoast (where I am).  The local papers tend to carry nice
full color graphic maps to further enable pinpoint traffic jams...

If you look at the USDA zone chart, NH goes from zone 3 to 6, due to the
moderating effects of the proximate Atlantic Ocean in the southeast. 
Heck, my yard goes from zone 4 to 5.

And, yes, of course the time the color hits varies by season.

Personally, I don't care whether the trip coincides with fall color,
come on, most of us who will/might participate live around here.  I have
a maple I can see from my bedroom window, so I barely need to break
through my coma to enjoy the season...

BTW, didn't someone set up a northeastern sub-list?  Shouldn't we be
discussing this there now that the general population of the planet
knows it's going to happen if they want to participate?
