I would like to take issue with your statement that the seasons are reversed in the Southern hemisphere. The seasons, I'll have you know, are normal in the Southern hemisphere. In the Northern hemisphere, they are reversed.

... err, do autumns follow summers there or do they precede them (just asking out of curiosity) smiley - smiley

Yup, same order, just different time. Summer is now until February, winter is June/July/August. White Christmases are for the birds...

No, we skip autumn altogether (too messy), we just segue straight into winter. The guys at the Weather Bureau draw the blinds, start the sprinklers going, throw the COLD lever, and the game is on for young and old.

... and you don't run the risk of becoming depressive on cold and wet november 'days' with grey overcast skies? Seems I'm on the wrong side of earth here!

Here in Australia the Queensland Tourist Board has the slogan "Beautiful one day, perfect the next."
What you need to do, is fire everybody at your weather bureau and headhunt new ones from Queensland. Your lot obviously don't know how to work the software: they keep hitting the wrong keys. Maybe the more senior ones go on leave in Nov (to Queensland) and leave the apprentices in charge?
