    Pet birds and poultry started molting earlier than usual. The mice moved in a month earlier too. I keep a clean house, but they chew right through the old adobe. We are averaging one dead trapped kill a day on mice. Also, bumper crops on all the fruit trees this summer, if that counts. I raise apples, cherry, pear, apricot, peach, plum, persimmon, figs, etc. Remains to be seen what the pecans will do.

    Wish the temps would cool down a bit.
    I am sick and tired of this heat!

    Our hickory nut trees haven't dropped yet, so about normal here.

    Mom is in Dayton Ohio area. She has a lot of acorns falling out of her oaks and she said the black walnuts are starting to fall. Too early for that.

    Only PORTIONS of Michigan have embraced Islam, so jus saying WRONG. And those portions were lost to liberals anyway.

    Besides, that looks about normal for a Michigan winter. Occasional arctic blasts, normal lake effect.

    It's been in the 40's here (southwestern NY state) the past couple nights. Suddenly the air and light quality feels strongly like fall. Sure hope not! We've got lush tomato plants with, finally, lots of green tomatoes, but except for one Juliet grape tomato, nothing showing any hints of ripening!

    And many Amish are praying for a long, warm, late fall... although others are praying for a quick, hard frost, to kill off the mosquitos that are killing so many horses! Tough year...

    I'm not ready for fall, either... summer is never long enough up here! But l picked and shelled 8# of seed peas. Ive got probably another bushel of yellow beans to can, and we're getting our first, sugar sweet, ripe colored peppers. I've got to get the mesh bags on the grapes tomorrow, somehow... we also have a bunch of hay and no help, because it's Sunday.

    But yes, it suddenly feels like time is getting short.

    Last night at about 8 pm, temp 96°, getting dark. I just filled a prescription at the store. As I was pulling out, I noticed hundreds of birds on the wires and in the trees. I mean Hitchcockian numbers. Noisy too.

    Crazy.

    38th parallel here. LOW sixties. Soft mast trees are loaded. A pear tree beside the house has covered the ground with golf-ball sized pears with the help of a gluttonous red squirrel. Tree is still full of pears.

    I'm digging around in the basement for my second set of truck tire chains. Haven't needed them for a few years.

    I'm 50 miles north of Seattle. Fall is definitely starting here. The weather has cooled down substantially, and the leaves are starting to turn. The rain has been back lately and our chickens have stopped laying as much. It seems like all the seasons have been shifted about a month sooner here, or so it seems.

    5 Anyone with updates?

    Our neighbor has 2 walnut trees that overhang our property. Normally 80-100 walnuts fall in our yard each fall, averaged over 10 yrs or so.
    Last year only had 39 on the ground, Winter not too bad.
    However this year they finally stopped falling at 295!

    Any one else with a high nut count?
    I'm in east central Indiana.

    Just fueling unnecessary fears.

    Been an unusually warm, wet fall here. I'm not too worried so far. Lots of berries and such for the wildlife to fatten up on.

    I'm usually the one saying 'it's gonna be a bad winter' even when it's not. It's DH now, which is concerning to me. He took the wood stove for maintenance today - we had our first snow on October 10.

    Really cold and windy here.

    Probbly not too unusual if you're in northern Canada. If you're in southern Mexico it could be a problem.

    Nuts are often biannual -- they'll bear heavily one year, and lightly the next year. So I don't know that you can judge the upcoming winter by how many nuts you get.

    Valid point. on the plains of eastern Colorado - October 10 is a bit early, like maybe 2 weeks.

    That may be so however a 200-300% over the "10 yr average" does get my attention.
    Only time will tell.
    I'm storing my nuts high.

    It was 97 here in south central Texas yesterday, and 95 today. Normal high for this weekend is 81. Though it’s going to cool off tomorrow and over the week, I don’t trust the cool down. I’m thinking this will be another “year without a winter.” I’ve already gone through two of those since I’ve been down here. Temps never get below about 65 all season.

    I hope you are right, Dennis. I can do without an excessive amount of cold. My gut instincts say that it is going to be lots of cold and ice. Hope I am wrong and you are right.
    Some Americans are asking what to do with Trump. Heres an idea. What would you have done if it was Obama? Do that.
