I heard an interesting tidbit on the news the other day. It appears that here in southern CT, the hot summer created a bad year for the acorn crop. I really should have noticed that because of the oak trees right near my deck. There are almost no acorns on the ground now, just the opposite of last year when I posted this.
But the next bit of information caught my attention. Due to the lack of acorns in the woods the deer population must find other food, mostly fresh grass. Here, the most convenient fresh grass for them is at the edge of the woods. Which is also on the edge of the highway.
Drivers, please be cautious.
