The signs of fall are clear. Being Post-Labor Day weekend is one, but the trees have lost their summer tone, the geese are in v-formations, and the temperatures just have that fall cool to them. The odd tree has a full turn of color, and some may just be dry or ill. The larger groupings of geese are not around yet, but the groups in v-formation are getting bigger. They remain in the dozen or so range. The wind and coolness are heavy with hints of fall.
Of note is the rareness of the loons. They have been around making their calls all summer, including a 3 in the morning, but now seem silent.
