Flowering fruit trees (pear) in Late Fall (October) and Winter

We have a Bradford pear tree in our front yard which normally blooms in the spring but it is now in full bloom in October, 2009!!! What is causing this?

Ornamental and fruit trees are blooming profusely NOW in late fall--it is not the first time following a hot, dry summer that this has occurred. This image was taken on September 26, 2006, in the Stone Oak area of San Antonio, Texas.
