Good Morning Coffee Friends!

Oddity this week outside in the yard... our white oak trees are dropping tons of itty bitty, teeny, immature acorns.  Not just a few acorns and not just a few trees.  We have almost 5 acres and all the white oaks are dropping.

White oak only drop their acorns every two years, but they are normal sized, regular acorns.  This isn't that.  I heard the acorns start to drop last week in the woods while I would spend time in the backyard or on the deck.  I didn't think much of it.  But then when walking down to get mail, I was daydreaming and looking down at the ground and realized I was passing, and walking over tons of acorns; but itty bitty ones.  Oddest thing!  We've lived here for 10 years and I've never seen them do this before.  Perhaps the heat?  Perhaps the crazy amount of rain this year?

I'm fighting a wicked headache and going to grab some Goody's headache powder so that's all I'm going to chat about over coffee today I guess.
