I took this shot recently after a thunder shower while I was walking to the subway to go to work. It struck me at the time - it was about 85 degrees with at least 80 percent humidity - as an unusual thing to see in the heat of summer. But things change and now that September is here, the weather has changed as well here in the east, Daytime highs are in the mid-70's, very low humidity and the night time temps in some area around here are in the 40's. So this leaf and the others like it on the ground, are a welcome sight. The cooler and drier weather is very much welcome after the third wettest summer in NYC history.
