Must be Anticipatory El Niño,or something

There is a common sight this time of the year here.

The tree trimmers are out.

Granted we are down in the heel of South Jersey, and nor’easter and winter storms can be rough. It must be getting too pricey for storm clean-up, as the local township is doing this for the first time.

I am a devotee of fat squirrel tales tell the tale of a hard winter. I guess now the public work trucks and chain saw are my back-up.
