Default Bad yr for water, good yr for nuts

In spite of the drought, nut trees are producing good crops, due to the sap in the roots. Next year, there probably won't be nearly as good a crop; acorns, etc. So this yr might be a good one for stocking up.

If next year is as drought stressed as this year was a lot of older trees will likely die because of useing up so much or thier reserves this year. Last time we had back to back droughts here a lot of old trees died and that was the reason that was given. ear

It may not be about how much wealth you have stored as much as it is about how much food do you have and can you keep the thieves from taking it?
