My but I had forgotten how beautiful the Northeast is this time of year. Now I usually enjoy a good storm, but from what I understand its just drab and miserable in Texas right now, yet here in Massachusetts - its beautiful. Sunny, cool days and blue skies. Wow. And I had forgotten how gorgeous this part of the country is when the leaves turn.

There's really nothing quite like it, and though this short video isn't nearly as awe-inspiring as seeing it in person, I couldn't help myself on the short drive back to my hotel from the convenience store:
