October 30th – Sunny weather, nice day, sat on the balcony for a while.

October 31st – Bit windy and damp, but went out for a nice walk.

November 1st – Blowing a gale and pouring down with rain. Deciduous trees perform synchronised leaf-drop (3:18pm) carpeting the pavements in brown detritus. First red breasted robin seen in the estate’s communal garden.

How clever of the weather to switch from autumn to winter exactly on the 1st Nov.

    Well precisely when do the season’s change Ian?

    I’ve always worked on the theory that there are four seasons in our years calender. If the well known and recognised first day of Spring is 21st March, then the commencement of Summer must be 21st June and Autumn 21 Sept and so on.

    Therefore considering all things equally, the first day of winter must equate to 21st December. Despite whatever our weather decides to throw at us!

    Or am I missing something that has made me shiver this year?
