Abundant acorns

There have never been more acorns, or larger ones, than the oaks have produced this year. Joining those scavengers who smite the pecan trees to bring down nuts that haven't fallen are people scooping up acorns to take to their deer leases. They are so large this year and so numerous that they produce a contant report, as though of gunfire, as they strike vehicles and the ever more popular metal roofs. They make more noise than the largest hailstones.
