SARATOGA SPRINGS- It’s an autumn ritual, but the shedding of leaves this year is causing some people to fear. It appears a growing cohort of skeptical individuals are interpreting the falling of leaves as an omen, giving rise to a concern that the sky might be next.
Others do not seem to agree with this prediction. One botanist we spoke with had this to say: “WTF? Doesn’t this happen every year? And, besides, I don’t even know what it means to have the sky fall. It’s not like a piece of painted sheetrock that could accidently crumble and fall on us.”
It appears only time will tell who is on the right side of this mystery. However, as this writer watches a red leaf slowly fall from a nearby branch, I cannot help but wonder what might be coming next.
