nights are getting cooler here.. got down to a chilly 20C last night! whoa! better start getting out the sheet for the bed!

Its funny here, ‘officially’ autumn starts March 1st, and when I explain to people that no, autumn _really_ doesn’t start until the equinox (march 21), people tend to go on about how autumn actually starts (well _all_ seasons officially start on the first of the month) on the 1st. Silly Australians.. they probably need to get more in tune with natural forces of the moon and planets, man. It’s amazing how people can put arbitrary dates on something so tied to planetary movements such as seasons. weirdness. oh well.. must be all the sun and beer!

Finally got around to start reworking my own web site. heh.. dates on some files are from 1989 and last login was 4 years ago.. naaa.. no cobwebs around that server!

You bloody Ozzie needs to get down to earth (either side of it will do ;-)). Assigning seasons by dates? March 1st or March 21st is equally silly.
Seasons is determined by CLIMATE!
Winter continues until the last snow melts, then spring begins, and continues until continuous summer temperatures of 15C or more is reached. The (all to short) summer then continues until temperature drops, at which point the (all to long) autumn begins, which in turn is replaced by winter at first snow.
Just the point of view of a Swede who longs to the warm 15C of Swedish summer…

I liked it in Kenya. When it started raining, it was the rainy season. When it stopped, it was the dry season. In the UK I count the first of June as the start of summer officially, because it’s also my birthday. But you can’t really tell the difference. Spring starts when I first go outside and think ‘hey, it’s spring!’, but the other seasons just merge into one!

Jeff Goldschrafe says:

I’m not sure how things work down there, but in the Northern hemisphere, meteorological and astronomical seasons are typically distinguished from one another through the difference between the 1st of the month (meteorological) and the equinox/solstice (astronomical) as you describe. If this is the case in your backwards part of the world as well, in the context of weather, they are right and you are not. ๐Ÿ™‚
