 Spectacular: Due to a drier than usual spring and summer, expect lots of  color this fall in the northern mountains. *Fall color peak should arrive during the first and second week of October in the highest elevations, above 4,000 feet, and during the third week of October in the mid-elevations, 2,500 to 3,500 feet…

The scientific reason: Sugar concentrations in the leaves increase during dry weather because the trees are not taking up as much water through their roots. The abundance of sugars leads to the production of more an-tho-cyan-ins, the red pigments that appear when green chlorophyll begins receding.     http://goo.gl/MpW2TJ

 What to consider when buying a new laptop:    Keep in mind that the speed of your processor isn’t the only factor that determines how well your PC functions. For instance, more RAM allows you to run more tasks simultaneously, and a solid-state flash drive instead of a mechanical hard drive will allow your PC to boot faster.    But tailoring the processor for your computing needs is generally a good way to ensure that you’re getting the right PC.  Tips: http://goo.gl/bUPvlu
