Another Spectrum

Personal ramblings and rants of a somewhat twisted mind



In Aotearoa New Zealand, the seasons are very easy to remember: Autumn starts on the first day of March; winter starts on the first day of June; spring starts on the first day of September; summer starts on the first day of December. Easy isn’t it? So how come the weather gods get it so wrong?

  1. This year is picked to be the hottest year since records began. I have to admit one of the prime reasons I left NZ was to bask in the heat of Australia. And boy have I got it in big doses, but I still like the heat, not a fan of cold Auckland winters.

    • I prefer cooler weather. Once it gets above 25 degrees C, I struggle to keep cool. And while i feel cold when it drops below 15, I find it easier to find ways of warming up than ways of cooling down.

    • The local weather gods don’t associate with evil so they’re unlikely to have anthing to do with Trump or the pandemic. However it’s clear that something has distracted them – probably climate change.

  3. It’s like that here in Buffalo … it’s almost Christmas & no snow. Usually we have snow at Halloween & always at Thanksgiving. This is SO depressing. Even more depressing are the people who are HAPPY about this.
