Bye Summer! Hello Fall


Image source

Tomorrow is officially the start of fall season. How fast the time flies, it seems like only yesterday was winter and now we are going forward to winter time again. It is still Fall but for me its already winter coz I am not used to cold weather. Its kindda chilly already here in our dungeon and I'm so ready to hibernate. Gosh! Summer is not enough for me, I wish there are 365 days of summer so that happy happy joy joy all the time. Pittsburgh are going to have the G20 Summit starting this Wednesday, so most of the classes in schools and universities will be cancel due to the summit. Apparently this will be the good time for me to relax and enjoy my ME TIME coz hubby is off from work for 2 days on the week then plus weekend. We can't go some place on that day either because aside from the traffic, we will have the car light fix to be ready for car inspection soon. Happy fall season everyone, enjoy it while winter hasn't come yet.
My first Fall Season here in the US of A


I got this information from Wikipedia, you might want to refresh your science lessons about weather and seasons of the year.
A season is a division of the year, marked by changes in weather.
Seasons result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to the plane of revolution. In temperate and polar regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the intensity of sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface, variations of which may cause animals to go into hibernation or to migrate, and plants to be dormant.
During June, July and August, the northern hemisphere is exposed to more direct sunlight because the hemisphere faces the sun. The same is true of the southern hemisphere in December, January, and February. It is the tilt of the Earth that causes the Sun to be higher in the sky during the summer months which increases the solar flux.
In temperate and polar regions generally four seasons are recognized: spring, summer, autumn, winter.
In some tropical and subtropical regions it is more common to speak of the rainy (or wet, or monsoon) season versus the dry season, because the amount of precipitation may vary more dramatically than the average temperature. For example, in Nicaragua, the dry season is called Summer (Oct to May) and the rainy season is called Winter (Apr to Nov) even though it is located in the northern hemisphere.
In other tropical areas a three-way division into hot, rainy and cool season is used.
In some parts of the world, special "seasons" are loosely defined based upon important events such as a hurricane season, tornado season or a wildfire season.
Chinese seasons are traditionally based on 24 periods known as solar terms, and begin at the midpoint of solstices and equinoxes.

Fall is a melancholic season associated with falling leaves and the onset of winter. Fall signifies the changing of season where most animals will hibernate during winter and where trees will seemingly die to resurrect come spring time. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
