Warming Nuts

In a front-page story last weekend, the Washington Post says there are fewer acorns this fall than in previous years. So, what caused the change? You know--see graph 11:
You have to wonder, is it global warming? Is it environmental? It makes you wonder what's going on.
Global warming--is there anything it can't do?

My brother in Maine informed me that the acorn production in his area indicated a cold winter coming.
I wonder what AVI in NH would say?

The lore is that high acorn production predicts a cold winter.

I don't think that's news, considering that people have been predicting that for several months.

I can almost guarantee one thing: A White Xmas, even for people who usually don't have one.

Where's that damned Global Warming when you really need it?

AVI has plenty of acorns in the yard. The dachshunds try to eat them.

Better keep that quiet, AVI--or the new Administration will start bussing acorns to Virginia (or squirrels to NH).

That's ok, it can be a new program under the Obama Nation's Re-Deal to guarantee full employment.

It'll go hand-in-hand with the overall economic plan to make certain that everyone in America has an above-average income...
