a non-aroid question

OK, so this has absolutely nothing to do with anything even remotely 
connected with aroids.

What happened to the acorns on Long Island this year?  Last year the rattle 
of them falling against the skylights created such a racket that I couldn't 
have slept in my new bedroom even if it had been ready.  The aftermath 
included sheets of acorns on the ground sometimes a couple inches thick.

This year I haven't seen a single acorn.  I understand that there might be 
some variation in seed production from one year to the next - but zero 
acorns?  I truly haven't seen a single one and my property is covered with 
tall oak trees.  (I expect to find skinny squirrels begging for scraps.)
