Ducktrap Valley weather
As September closed, the rain gauge gave us a reading of 1.45 inches for the last weekend. Peak color in the Valley should occur this weekend or just after Columbus Day. It is advancing fast and a big rain or wind or combination will bring a lot of it down. i had a couple from California buy syrup today 9Friday), and they took a walk out Olde dickey road and said it was beautiful. There's snow in parts of Minnesota, and our mountains will likely see some flakes as the next cold front passes. Mt. Katahdin and the mile-high summits of New Hampshire should be decked out in snowcaps.
