Red Maple Seeds

(Toledo, OH) A poster at ToledoTalk noted that his maple trees have not produced the requisite "helicopters," "whirlies," or "whirlybirds" as they have in the past. Normally, he pointed out, they clog his pool filter early on in the year.

I checked, and my red maple tree has an abundance of helicopters, loaded and ready for launch in a few weeks. It seems to me that my helicopters should have fallen by now, too.

This reminds me of an earlier discussion about using natural phenomena to mark the passing of time.
