I have my own ways of judging the seasons. Spring arrives when we get our first day of 20 degrees. Autumn arrives when we get our first day under 20 degrees. Winter has arrived when we get a week of temperatures below 20 degrees and summer has arrived when we get a week over over 20 degrees. (20 is 68F)
Then there is my shower that I judge the seasons by. Twice a year in spring and autumn for about a month, I can just turn my hot and cold tap on in my shower and the water temperature will be right. In winter I turn both taps on and then reduce the cold. In the summer I turn the hot tap on, then the cold and then back off the hot water.
Cold water is stored in a tank on the roof before being pumped around the building, so if the earth is not responsible for warming the cold water, then it must warm a little in the tank.
It was rather wet last week, so I gave the balcony plants a leaf wash. The rain was coming in on an easterly and unusually completely wet the balcony, and my socks too when I walked out there in them and did not look down. There has been flooding in the western part of the state, and with some more falls tomorrow and Wednesday, more flooding is expected. Of course many farmers will complain that the rain is coming at the wrong time, because that is what farmers do.
