I have a terrible closet of an office. But it has a great view: hundred mile visibility, and multiple mountain ranges.
Once a year, a magical thing happens outside this window. It usually lasts for a day.
Around Halloween, a locust tree next to the building turns gold. But it hangs on to its tiny leaves. Until a wind storm comes through.
If it gusts, the view from my window becomes filled with fluttering specks of gold. Every year, it is one of the most amazing things I see.

I will try for a better video next year.
