Signs of Fall in the Midwest: The squirrels are going crazy, stocking up on nuts for the winter. We have a large oak in our backyard that is literally "raining" acorns. But the nuts of choice are the walnuts from our tree in front of our house. My husband discovered that the squirrels were "squirreling away" these nuts in our storage shed. The squirrels lined up the walnuts in precise rows and they had even brought in pieces of grass in order to make a nice, cozy home for the winter. We can also hear the squirrels scampering across our roof, as they jump from tree to tree. We must be in for a long, cold winter by the amount of nuts being hidden in our shed!
