Hello, neighbors! Gabriela Couvillion here with the latest issue of San Antonio Daily.

Generally sunny and pleasant. High: 77 Low: 50.
Here are the best stories in San Antonio today:
- Now that the cool fall weather has arrived, fall foliage is on its way, which means it’s time to see the leaves turning in South Texas. Normally the leaves are green in spring and summer due to chlorophyll, which “allows plants to absorb sunlight and convert it into usable energy.” As temperatures drop in the fall and the days get shorter, “the decrease in sunlight causes the large amount of chlorophyll stored in the leaves to decompose.” As this happens, its green color fades and their “underlying pigments, like yellows and reds, become more visible.” This is what it means to “see the leaves turn”. A perfect place to experience this natural phenomenon is at Lost Maples State Natural Area in Vanderpool, Texas. For more details on this great experience, please visit: (KENS5.com)
- Opening vintage shops and shopping for old Spurs shirts seems like a new trend among San Antonio’s 20+. “As an elder millennia and younger Gen-Z wade through an increasingly unstable workforce in a COVID– distressed landscape, many appropriate their income through the resale of vintage clothing. While this is an observable national trend, a major local cash cow for burgeoning local T-shirt businessmen is ultimately not surprising: “90s spurs T-shirts. ”Two of these entrepreneurs are Nathaniel Ruiz, 24 and 23 year old brother, Bryan. The brothers and sisters have opened their shop Exhausted in October 2020, thus transforming “their love of collecting and casually selling 90s vintage into a viable livelihood during the COVID-19[female[feminine pandemic. ”Two other brothers with a similar story are Jarod ramos, 27 and Joshua Ramos, 22 years old, who also found themselves to resell 90s full-time vintage as a direct result of the pandemic.
