Following are some pictures of fall color in New Jersey that were posted on the web from years past, with links to the original attached. I can't say for certain the exact date they were taken, only the date of uploading is noted. But I think most of them correspond fairly closely to their November dates. In any event, we haven't seen anything like these colors at any time this autumn.
Colors of Fall Oxford, NJ uploaded November 10, 2007
Bridgewater, NJ uploaded Nov. 21, 2008 This is of particular interest because it is quite close to Oldwick.
Next, what follows are some pictures I took on October 21, 2009
of the typically drab scenery on that date.
And this picture I took this morning, November 10.
