Crickets, juncos, flying termites. All of these are signs of fall, and all are upon us now. Very strange. After a dry year and a half, it seems as if an early autumn might be upon us, given these signs. Plus the salal and blackberries were several weeks early, and both crops were HUGE.



Not a good huckleberry or thimbleberry year though. Small dry berries, not like last year. Salmon berries were probably average.



So what does this tell us? We had a dry spring and early summer, but fall is fast approaching?



Maybe.
