Southern Foliage??

Okay, so everyone knows that all the good fall foliage "happens" in New England.  I lived there for 15 years.  I know.  I've seen it with my very own two little eyes.  I hate to break it to you folks, but this year not so much. 
That FREAK snow storm a few weeks ago did it in.  Knocked down leaves, branches, and even entire trees that hadn't had time to prepare themselves for the onslaught.  :(

So, I was a little sad that I might not get to see any foliage this year.  Well.  This afternoon when I went to pick my daughter up after school there was this tree.  Yeah.  Holy tree-on-fire, Batman.  I actually threw her into the car, RACED home, grabbed my camera, raced BACK to the the tree, and fired off a few shots.

The sky was full of all these wonderful, spotty clouds that (for some bizarre reason) reminded me of the Simpsons.  Yah.  The light was so wonderful and warm and rich.  Obviously the time change did wonders!

You tell me.  Was it worth it?  Who says the South doesn't get good foliage!?
