Here in OK land, the light would be a sixpack. Moderate, a case. Nor'easter would be a pickup full of beer.

We're never getting a severe storm here ever again. Now that I'm actually working on my own backup generator, the power will be on forever and I'll look at the thing in 10 years and wonder why I bothered.

I hope you are right Dean.

When I see the indicator, we must always have snow storms of the highest grade. The right guy at the picture looks like my neighbor... :yeah_that:

What does an overabundance of acorns mean?
I don't think I've ever seen the oaks shedding so many.

I've heard that it has more to do with the summer behind it and goes in years cycles more than anyone else. Good question though. I've never heard anything really scientific about it.

In the old days my grandpa told me to look for this indicators like an overabundance of acorns or blackthorn or the early shedding of the chestnut trees. Maybe it's not scientific, but I think, that in hundreds of years the people of a county learned to look for such signs and to interpret them. It's like the other wheater indicators, too.
