Well, the tall guy was right!
The sun has been covered up with clouds for about a week now and it has rained a little almost every day. All the leefs are falling out of the trees, except for the pine leefs. They just stick on the tree. The pine combs, however, have fallen all over the yard. One word of advice: do not try to eat the pine combs, because if you do, your mouth will soon be sorry. And I'd hate to think of what your other end would feel like if you actually DID eat one.
