Default Hello "Summer"

So it's now my most least favorite season of the year, Summer and Winter for you folks in the US. We've been getting a lot of rain to kick it off a heatwave in Hobart. We had an unusually warm November with six consecutive days on or above 25C for the first time in nearly 130 years so we broke a record. Now we are getting hammered with rain for since Friday and probably for the week to come.

Check this out, this a hotel in the North of State.

Summer. I do not think so. It is autumn. On the 21st winter begins which is great. Means colder weather unlike lousy summer months where it gets way to hot.

We finally started getting 25C in my planet. This morning after sunrise I drove in 25.5C. That was nice, regardless to getting 27C after the hour drive to work. Had to run the A/C for a moment after parking. No A/C driving sure does save enough fuel that counts in this old car.

Really? A whole 6 consecutive days over 25C? WOW, you have it so tough. Try living up here in North Queensland, we have 9 months of the year where it is over 30C every day, poor princess.

25c is a heatwave now? hahahahahhahha seriously?. This a joke right? 6 days over 25c? I hope you came through unscathed that sounds brutal AF. I also live in NQ...25 degrees sounds like winter. It was 29 degrees at 5am when I got in the car this morning to go to work..and it was still dark ...25 degrees you poor thing. We'd be lucky to get 6 consecutive days UNDER 25c ...oh wow.

The Site Team is ganging up on you

Anyway, we still get +30C here. This is sad.

Say, is winter on Earth winter everywhere or can it be summer on some parts of it? I mean the time of the year, irregardless to temperature.

Oh boy, I just said irregardless!!!

Yeah SG, you used irregardless which is a non-existent word and very often misused. The correct word is regardless.

To answer your question though, the Northern and Southern hemispheres have opposite seasons so Winter in the Northern hemisphere equates to Summer in the Southern.

Hey thanks! (for both the English and the geography lessons)

I thought a season on a point of the Earth and the the exact opposite point of it on the other side is the same season and the difference is only the nature of the season in weather. E.g. Winter gets -20C on the former point and 15C on the latter. And I was like maybe that's why in winter in Canada they could get ice cubes falling from the sky (figure of speech) while where I live we still open the A/C on cold sometimes.

I prefer irrespective, but apparently irregardless is a word:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/irregardless

it's non-standard, but it is in the dictionary. Also, chrome's spell-checker doesn't red-underline it.

That's interesting Cortb, I had been taught that it was NOT a word but I guess I never tried looking it up. Regardless, I'll continue using only the standard word.

I'm assuming it entered the lexicon after heavy use by sarah palin in the 2008 elections. I usually only use it if i'm making fun of something/someone though...

Luckily we haven't gotten any snow here yet in the Rockies, I just hope we have a mild Winter this year.

Funny thing is... regardless and irregardless means the same. It's an age old quirk in the English language.

Hearing about that kind of weather in other states makes me all the more determined that I will never move out of Calif!

Yeah, it's gonna be nasty here. I've been taking GrayZ in for the night.

It's great to have both of my boys sleeping with me.
