Acorns [Was Re: a non-aroid question]

Here in Northern Michigan, the acorns started dropping in August. I asked one 
of my neighbors, a retire forester, if it was because of the drought. He said 
that in a dry year, the trees will drop many of them early (relatively 
unformed) to use the energy for leaf retention / food production.

I've seen a few acorns here and there as I've been working out in the yard. 
But this is not a typical year.
