"If weather stays like it has last two days, sunny days with cold nights, we will have good fall colors," An Appalachian State University biologist is going out on a limb to predict fall leaf colors.

On 9/11, I was home passed out in bed with the head-cold from hell. Phone rang, and it was father-in-law breathlessly saying, "turn on the TV, turn on the TV." I fumbled for the remote and knocking everything off the nightstand. My brain couldn't connect the dots at all. When I finally get the TV on, trying to focus, I thought I saw a plane crash into a building, turning up the volume, the announcers are saying "oh my God, a second plane just hit the towers."
