Fierce Winter Ahead? The Oaks Know Something

The woods this fall are filled with acorns. Trails are a kind of roller derby of the nuts underfoot, and squirrels look fat and happy. At night there’s a continual clatter, as the acorns fall. A friend who lives in the woods tells me that this prodigy is extraordinary, and signals some preparation by the oaks for extremities ahead. I’ll keep you posted.
