Volume One Special Coverage: Pulling Together While Staying Apart


Fall Color Coming Early to Wisconsin

Briana Bryant

Good news, leaf fans. Eau Claire County is currently amongst the most autumn-esque counties in all of Wisconsin – with an estimated Go Look at the Awesome Trees Cuz It Only Gets Browner from Here Time (our phrase, not theirs) around the third week of September.  Who says? Travel Wisconsin says. The Wisconsin Fall Color Report on TravelWisconsin.com, gives you up-to-date color percentages for the foliage in each of Wisconsin’s glorious counties –  we are already at 25% color, and September has barely begun. Dunn County is behind by a long shot, only at 15% color, while Chippewa County is also at 15%.Not sure what’s in the water (or lack of it) up in Winter, Wis., but they’re at a whopping 35%. Clearly, something wild is going on with the weather. From a weak, is-that-all-you’ve-got winter to an unbearably sweltering summer, and now venturing into an early approaching autumn, I’m not sure where the madness will stop. But hopefully, all the kinks will be worked out and we can breathe a sigh of relief when everything is back to normal. Unless, of course, you enjoy unseasonable weather. Then by all means, savor it.
