What? Spring is here ?!?
It's hard enough to adjust to the southern hemisphere: when it's winter it's summer, and when it's summer it's winter - but fair enough. Where it gets really bad is when they tell me it's spring. Yes, in Australia, they change seasons on March 1st, June 1st, September 1st and December 1st so today is the first day of spring. I find this rather shocking. Was it all too hard to follow the natural rythm of solstices and equinoxes? But what upsets me most is... they're bloody right: spring is here: look at this!
