Acorns Launched

The big news in the woods today is that virtually all of the acorns have popped out of their caps today.  The only ones that I saw still attached to their caps were a few immature ones such as 8214.  I would love to have seen the detaching.  I did see a few still sitting near their caps and  one with the umbilicus detached but the cap still loose on the acorn.  What could the signal have been?  My son M with whom I was discussing this matter thought shrinking of the acorn due to dryer air.  Makes sense to me.
