Unnatural Fall Color

Before I left for St. Louis last Tuesday, Joe and I went out to look at a Forest Service burn area, but first went to the wrong spot. I didn't realize how wrong it was until we were in the middle of a dense brushy area and I saw blue water on the foliage. We were walking through an area that had just (probably within an hour) been sprayed with herbicide. I can only hope that this bug I have had since the day after that is unrelated. Also that whoever the contractor who sprayed it (and failed to post the area) used the appropriate dilution. From what I have read about it (a product called Arsenal AC), there have been few studies on its effects on ground water and wildlife.

Oh no, that's terrible. How long does this stay on the leaves and the ground? Unreal..
