Good news, Colorado Springs! Your trees won't be naked all summer.

Wednesday's hail storm stripped many trees of their leaves and branches. However, Scott Steiner, a Forest Service spokesman, says, "More than likely, [the leaves will grow back], depending on how badly the trees were hurt."

Steiner notes most trees continue to grow leaves until the first frost.

As for the windows, that's another story.
