Start those snowblower engines now. I have tons and tons of acorns in my driveway such that walking to the mailbox is tricky business. The squirrels are out in full force too, and I even saw a mouse with a mouthful of acorns.
There’s the Squirrel Burying Acorn Theory from a weatherman in Kansas City.
Of course, some say it’s just an old wives tale, that the true harbinger of a harsh winter is seeing Canada Geese flying in September.
The only thing we know for sure is that one reader here, Riverside Dog Walker, is laughing his head off because he and his wife are forsaking the northeast snow for Florida sunshine. And chris, he’s in California, saying we are all a bunch of suckers to live in the snowbelt.
Whatever you believe about the acorns, I think we can all agree that the current 90+ degree weather with 1000000% humidity is awful. Snow almost (almost) sounds good! Did I really say that?
