California Seasons  
Easterners like to snark about how the Golden State "doesn't have seasons."

Of course it does. They're just different than East Coast seasons.

We have:

  • Air, when the hills are green, the flowers bloom, and the wind is a pleasant, offshore breeze.

  • Earth, when the hills have turned brown golden.

  • Fire, when the hot devil winds blow from the mountains, and the wildfires bloom.

  • Water, when the rains roll in.

The seasons may start earlier or later, and they may be more intense in one year than another, but, by golly, they're there.

And when those seasons combine they form CAPTAIN PLANET!

Whereas we say around Northern Michigan that we have three seasons: July, August, and Winter.

Summer and Road Construction.

Of course we have seasons, hehe. We have strawberry, nectarine, apple and orange. ;)

It's too bad that these seasons aren't are equal.

Oh, yeah, because we REALLY need three months of Fire every year!

You know, after 2008, when we really DID have three-plus months of Fire, that's even LESS funny...
