Here's more information you never knew you wanted to know. I like to think of the first day of September as the beginning of a new season. I'm so done with summer with the heat and drought so I plan on thinking I'm in Fall....meteorological Fall, that is.
Here's some facts from the 'net:
So what's the difference between Meteorological Fall and Astronomical Fall? The obvious difference is they have different start and end dates. Meteorological Fall starts September 1st and ends November 30th. Astronomical Fall starts September 22nd and ends December 21st.
The length of the meteorological seasons are more consistent than the astronomical ones, so that we can observe, forecast and compare season statistics reliably from year to year.
Are you having a good week? We've had a few cool days and a small amount of rain (3.2mm in the past 24 hours. 16 mm in August.) I took advantage of the coolness and baked some muffins.
We did the grocery shopping this morning which meant we skipped our walk. ( We can't do both any more it seems). We'll get back on track tomorrow.
Thanks for coming by, Granny M
